Excerpt from A Vindication of John: From the Objections of M. Griesbach; In Which Is Given a New View of the External Evidence, With Greek Authorities for the Authenticity of the Verse, Not Hitherto Adduced in Its Defence
It may be of some service to religion, if we can rescue any one evidence of Christian doctrine from the imputations of bigotry, fraud, falsehood, and forgery, which have been at any time brought against it. Such charges have a tendency to weaken the faith even of sincere believers in the doctrine so said to be supported, and to affect the credit of the church which professes it. The doctrine and the church must be very corrupt which can require or employ such means for their support; and, though the doctrine may have many other evidences of its truth, yet the disputed evidence is usually attacked as vehemently as if the doctrine had no other ground to rest upon.
