Wisdom In This Framework Only

“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

Test It Out

“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?
