The Heart of Christianity… Life in Christ

“The letter turns around a question that every age has asked in different ways: What is the heart of true Christianity? [Henry] Scougal’s answer was that true Christianity consists not in the trappings of religion, not in going to church or in the saying of prayers, not in the making of orthodox affirmations or any external form. Rather, Scougal wrote, true Christianity consists in a “union of the soul with God, a real participation of the divine nature, the very image of God drawn upon the soul, or, in the apostle’s phrase, it is Christ formed within us … a divine life.”” -Rankin Wilbourne
