Excerpt from Constitution and Address of the Bible Association of Friends in America
1740. And, dear friends, as much as in you lies, encourage a frequent and diligent reading of the Holy Scriptures in your families. In them are contained the promises of eternal life and salvation. For, as a steady trust and belief in the promises of God, and a frequent meditation in the law of the Lord, were the preservation of a remnant in old time, so it is even to this day. And, as a distrust and disbelief of the promises of God, and a neglect of his holy law, were the occasion of the complaints made against the Jews, the posterity of Abraham; even so we have reason to fear that the apparent declension, in our time, of true piety and godly zeal, in many places, is too much owing to a disregard of the doctrines of the Ho ly Scriptures, and the promises of the Holy Spirit in them recorded.
