Stott: sure words

March 3, 2009

    I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles.
    -- 2 Peter 3:2 (NIV)

    Our starting point is Scripture, which we accept as God’s unique and trustworthy revelation. Yet, in seeking with loyalty to conserve this truth from God, we attribute no infallibility to our own evangelical traditions. We desire, rather, to re-examine them radically—that is to say, with a thoroughness which digs down even to their roots. If we seem to the reader to be always sure about the truthfulness of Scripture but sometimes less than sure in our understanding of how to apply it to complex contemporary questions, then he has accurately grasped our mood.
    ... John R. W. Stott (b.1921), “Obeying Christ in a Changing World”

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I believe Your word for my time.
