John Wycliffe: Truth Will Conquer

John Wycliffe was a 14-century scholar, theologian, and Bible translator who brought the Gospels into the hands of the common folk by writing them in Middle English. From there, he laid the groundwork for a new generation of Christians to rise out. Here are my top 10 quotes from John Wycliffe:

“I believe that in the end the truth will conquer.”

“This Bible is for the Government of the People, by the People, and for the People.”

“Crown and cloth make no priest, nor emperor’s bishop with his words, but power that crist giveth; and thus by life have been priests known.”

“There was good reason for the silence of the Holy Spirit as to how, when, in what form Christ ordained the apostles, the reason being to show the indifferency of all forms of words.”

“The true Christian was intended by Christ to prove all things by the Word of God: all churches, all ministers, all teaching, all preaching, all doctrines, all sermons, all writings, all opinions, all practices. These are his marching orders. Prove all by the Word of God; measure all by the measure of the Bible; compare all with the standard of the Bible; weigh all in the balances of the Bible; examine all by the light of the Bible; test all in the crucible of the Bible. That which cannot abide the fire of the Bible, reject, refuse, repudiate, and cast away. This is the flag which he nailed to the mast. May it never be lowered!”

“I acknowledge that the sacrament of the altar is very God’s body in form of bread, but it is in another manner God’s body than it is in heaven.”

“The higher the hill, the stronger the wind: so the loftier the life, the stronger the enemy’s temptations.”

“Trust wholly in Christ; rely altogether on His sufferings; beware of seeking to be justified in any other way than by His righteousness. Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ is sufficient for salvation. There must be atonement made for sin according to the righteousness of God. The person to make this atonement must be God and man.”

“It is not good for us to trust in our merits, in our virtues or our righteousness; but only in God’s free pardon, as given us through faith in Jesus Christ.”

“Belief fails when it works not well indeed but is idle as a sleeping man… Each virtuous deed is strong when it is grounded upon the solidity of belief.”
