Ramm on Religious Authority

In the matter of religious authority the Spirit and the Word are insolubly conjoined. The Scriptures function in the ministry of the Spirit, and the Spirit functions in the instrument of the Word. In this vital relationship of Spirit and Scripture the Reformers grounded their doctrine of religious authority.

— Bernard Ramm, The Pattern of Authority, (Grand Rapids: William B. Eerdmans, 1957) p. 29
