“There are a great many things [in Christianity] that cannot be understood until after you have gone a certain distance along the Christian road.” -C.S. Lewis
”The baby in the manger was the Wonderful Counselor, he came to bless us with life-giving wisdom because sin reduces all of us to fools.” – Paul Tripp
“Nearly all the wisdom we possess, that is to say, true and sound wisdom, consists of two parts: knowledge of God and of ourselves.” -John Calvin
“A fool think himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.” -William Shakespeare
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” -Winston Churchill
“Take no truths upon trust, but all upon trial.” -Thomas Brooks
BTW NOTE: This probably requires a nuance of some sort, because taken absolutely it is naturalism. How does one ‘take upon trial’ the truth that Christ was resurrected as the firstfruits of our resurrection? Perhaps the trial is made of the evidence that the Scripture that teaches this is divine revelation? Or that the resurrection has a better argument in support of it than any other humanistic or religious hope?
“Give ten thoughts to the question, ‘What will God think of it,’ before one to, ‘What will men think of it.'”- James W. Alexander
