CQOD: 12/31/07 -- Sergeant: the principles of the Lollards

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 31, 2007
Commemoration of John Wycliffe, Reformer, 1384
    What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you--guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.
    -- 2 Timothy 1:13,14 (NIV)

    The gist of what Wycliffe* has to say on every point is practically this, that where the Church and the Bible do not agree, we must prefer the Bible; that where authority and conscience appear to be rival guides, we shall be much safer in following conscience; and that where the letter and the spirit seem to be in conflict, the spirit is above the letter.
    ... Lewis Sergeant

* John Wycliffe, "morningstar of the Reformation" (1320?-1384)

Quiet time reflection:
    Praise to You, Lord, for Your precious Word.
