Williams: the force of argument
Commemoration of Charles Williams, Spiritual Writer, 1945
[Paul:] When Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong.
—Galatians 2:11 (NIV)
The history of Christendom itself would have been far happier could we all have remembered that rule of intelligence—not to believe a thing more strongly at the end of a bitter argument than at the beginning, not to believe it with the energy of the opposition rather than one’s own.
... Charles Williams (1886-1945), The Descent of the Dove: a history of the Holy Spirit in the church, Meridian Books, 1956, p. 193 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, please do not allow anger to break Your fellowship.
