Concerning Seducers

Seducers deceive by wisdom of words………They seem to be men of zeal and sanctity, and to be divinely inspired, and pretend to new revelation.

Thomas Watson A Body of Divinity (A Preliminary Discourse to Catechizing)

Concerning those who believe God is giving revelation through prophets today

An erroneous principle, than which scarce any has proved more mischievous to the present glorious work of God, is a notion that it is God’s manner in these days to guide His saints by inspiration, or immediate revelation…. As long as a person has a notion that he is guided by immediate direction from heaven, it makes him incorrigible and impregnable in all his misconduct.

Jonathan Edwards, Some Thoughts Concerning the Present Revival of Religion inNew England, p.1:404
