Quote - Thomas Paine

This quote was added by weesin
It is a contradiction in terms and ideas to call anything a revelation that comes to us second hand. Revelation is necessarily limited to the first communication. After this, it is only an account of something which that person says was a revelation made to him; and though he may find himself obliged to believe it, it cannot be incumbent on me to believe it in the same manner, for it was not a revelation made to me, and I have only his word for it that it was made for him.
