CQOD: 07/10/07 -- Mascall: faith vs. scholarship (II)
Christian Quotation of the DayJuly 10, 2007
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
-- Proverbs 3:5 (NIV)
In the rare cases where faith appears to be contradicted by scholarship whose conclusions have not been prescribed from the start, [the critical scholar] may be cast down but will not be destroyed. For he will know how temporary and mutable the conclusions of scholarship essentially are, and he will also be conscious that he himself may not have perfectly comprehended the Church’s faith.
... E. L. Mascall (b.1905), The Secularization of Christianity 
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, in my ignorance, I rely on You.
