Re: Tinker Tailor Soldier Forger

They're a description of something deliberately not said, an oral tradition. Remember what Irenaeus says AH 3.2.1. When, however, they are confuted from the Scriptures, they turn round and accuse these same Scriptures, as if they were not correct, nor of authority, and [assert] that they are ambiguo...

Re: Tinker Tailor Soldier Forger

As a side note the echo of Galatians 4:12, 1 Corinthians 11:1 and other Pauline statements is intriguing too - "I desire to restore you according to the original model, that you may become also like Me."
