â€œI frequently felt that if I pretended to believe the Bible I would at any rate attempt to live by it, putting it fairly to the test and if it failed to prove true and reliable would throw it overboard altogether. These views I retained when the Lord was pleased to bring me to Himself. I think I may say that since then I have put Godâ€™s Word to the test. Certainly it has never failed me. I have never had reason to regret the confidence I have placed in its promises or to deplore following the guidance I have found in its directions.
