The late James M. Boice writes:
It is not at all uncommon in our seminaries today for a young man to be taught that if he stands firm on a high view of Scripture as the Church in previous ages has always done, he runs the danger of bibliolatry or Bible-worship. That is, he runs the danger of actually worshiping the Bible instead of the Lord Jesus Christ and of placing it on a pedestal which even Jesus Himself did not assign to it. This argument against the traditional view of the Christian Church on Scripture sounds valid to some persons and even seems pious, but it is misleading. And as used in the hands of some teachers it has greatly harmed the unwary. In opposition to this debilitating and erroneous approach, the careful student of the Bible must maintain that Christ so identified Himself with Scripture and so interpreted His ministry in the light of Scripture that it is impossible to weaken the authority of the one without at the same time weakening the authority of the other. And to accept Christ’s teachings is at the same time to accept His high view of God’s Word [James M. Boice, The Sermon on the Mount: An Exposition (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1972), 84].
