Doctrine on the Scripture
by Tertullian (145 - 220 ad)
"I revere the fulness of His Scripture … In the gospel, moreover, I discover a Minister and Witness of the Creator, even His Word. But … (that particular doctrine that Hermogenes had begun to teach) … I have as yet failed anywhere to find. Where such a statement is written, Hermogenes' shop must tell us. If it is nowhere written, then let it fear the woe which impends on all who add to or take away from the written word.”
Tertullian, exerpt from Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol III, Tertullian, "Against Hermogenes," Chapt XXII
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." 2 Tim 3:16-17 KJV
