Hi, Mike. I'll have to dig a bit to see if that's the case; but it seems
like a reasonable statement to me. :-)

It's been a Methodist argument for some time. I'm inclined to say that
Reason serves nicely as the rule and guide of the other three. There are
fundamentalists who claim the Bible is, but how you can interpret it
without the other three is beyond me... :-)

(Incidentally, I'd like to make a short correction here. It's the Wesleyan
"Quadrilateral," not "Quadrangle," as I said before. )
