The Living Preacher, Vol. 1 : February, 1885 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Living Preacher, Vol. 1: February, 1885 The Baptists, differing from most of their neighbors in this as well as in many other things, take the New Testament as their only book of discipline. They have never had, and do not want any other, and have never had but little trouble about their ecle siasticism. They have lived in all sorts of times and under all sorts of worldly governments, and yet their church polity has. Been the same. They have never seen the necessity. Of shaping it to Conform to any civil government under which they have lived. And al though they have increased so wonderfully 111 numbers, wealth and learning, they find that the simple, plain church polity of their book of discipline answers well for all proper church work. They do not feel at liberty, if they were so disposed, to change the form of their church polity to suit the altered conditions of human society. The polity being divine, all church work must be made to bend to that. Mohamet must go to the mountain not the mountain to Mohamet.
