CQOD: 07/01/06 -- Berdyaev: the entrance to heaven

Christian Quotation of the Day

July 1, 2006
Commemoration of John & Henry Venn, Priests, Evangelical Divines, 1813, 1873
    For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, in which he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison...
    -- 1 Peter 3:18-19 (ESV)

    For Christian consciousness, paradise is the Kingdom of Christ and is unthinkable apart from Christ. But this changes everything. The cross and the crucifixion enter into the bliss of paradise. The Son of God and the Son of Man descends into hell to free those who suffer there... To conquer evil, the good must crucify itself.
    ... Nikolai A. Berdyaev (1874-1948), The Destiny of Man [1937]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have rensomed me, at what a cost!
