That Suppositious Sot

William Burt Pope (1822-1903) writes the following about that suppositious sot whose TRUTH criterion was something OTHER than Scripture ALONE (this quote is not a blanket-endorsement of the Methodist theologian, William Burt Pope):

“Luther insisted on a material inspiration, as to doctrine, and a formal, as to the manner, which was of less importance: he subjected the books of the New Testament to the criterion of his own judgment as to their Evangelical character, and rejected, for instance, the Epistle of St. James. …¬†Luther, who asserted that wood, hay, and stubble might be in the prophets, though the substance was there that could not be burned” (William Burt Pope, A Compendium of Christian Theology).
