Famous quotes containing the word orthodox:
“The gloomy theology of the orthodoxthe CalvinistsI do not, I cannot believe. Many of the notionsnay, most of the notionswhich orthodox people have of the divinity of the Bible, I disbelieve. I am so nearly infidel in all my views, that too, in spite of my wishes, that none but the most liberal doctrines can command my assent.”
