Excerpt from The Whole Counsel of God, or the Duty of the Clergy as Teachers of the People, With Particular Reference to the Recent Judgement in the Case of "Essays and Reviews" A Sermon Preached in the Abbey Church of St. Mary, Sherborne, on the Second Sunday in Lent, Feb. 21, 1864, at the General Ordination of the Lord Bishop of Salisbury The whole counsel of God! It was God's word, not man's; it was neither the result of a thoughtful speculation, nor yet an approximative guess, nor yet a cunningly devised fable. Being God's word, it was as a whole worthy of the best thought and love that His creature could give it. That mi nistry of three months in the great Ephesian syna gogue', and then the two years which followed of laborious teaching in the School of the Rheto ri'cian Tyrannusm, and last, but not least, the wide publicity, the general attention, and the active hatred of heathen foes which culminated in the Riot of the Amphitheatre had enabled the Apostle to put forward the Gospel, the whole area of its Doctrine, the many sides on which it attracted, and awed, and subdued the soul of man - in unabridged unmutilated completeness. 'all they which dwelt in Asia (i. E. Asia Minor) heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.'
