Dean John Burgon on the Trustworthiness of The Text

"We trust to the Church of all ages as the keeper and witness of Holy Writ, we bow to the teaching of the Holy Ghost, as conveyed in all wisdom by facts and evidence; and we are certain, that, following no preconceived notions of our own, but led under such guidance, moved by principles so reasonable and comprehensive, and observing rules and instructions appealing to us with such authority, we are in all main respects


(Dean John Burgon, The Traditional Text of the Holy Gospels, p. 230)
