Quote for the Day

He who begins by loving Christianity better than Truth, will proceed by loving his own Sect or Church better than Christianity, and end in loving himself better than all.

  1. Ellen Duell says:

    I don’t think Jesus was a “Christian”–He refused even to be addressed as “Good..” he replied, “Only God is good.” And “Why callest thou me ‘Lord, Lord’?” –If He had insisted on adulation, we could not love Him as we do. He washed the dust from his disciples’ feet himself.

    A blessed Easter to all!

    I am re-reading The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. In chapter 4 Screwtape quotes Coleridge in this way:

    “One of their poets, Coleridge, has recorded that he did not pray “with moving lips and bended knees” but merely “composed his spirit to love” and indulged “a sense of supplication.” That is exactly the sort of prayer we want; and since it bears a superficial resemblance to the prayer of silence practiced by those who are very far advanced in the Enemy’s service, clever and lazy patients can be taken in by it for quite a long time.”

    There’s quite a bit in this book that confuses me and some which convicts me. I’m reminded what a fine line it is to walk in the Light.

  5. Michael Kennedy says:

    I thought there is no distinction between truth and Christianity. To me they are interchangeable
