Scripture as punishment

“The holy writings are valuable for those who use them right,” testified one Anabaptist at the Regensburg trials in Bavaria. “But their misuse is the source of all heresy and unbelief. To the scribes and the Pharisees the holy writings were not a guide to Christ, but a hindrance and eventually a punishment.”
- Peter Hoover, The Secret of the Strength: What Would the Anabaptists Tell This Generation
(from a good article on bibliolatry by David Flowers)
