Basil: inspiration

Monday, April 30, 2012
    Commemoration of Pandita Mary Ramabai, Translator of the Scriptures, 1922
    [Jesus to the Pharisees and teachers of the law:] “Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.”
    —Mark 7:13 (NIV)
    Every word or matter ought to be accredited by the testimony of inspired Scripture. Nor ought anyone to dare to annul or add anything. For if everything which is not of faith is sin, as the Apostle says, and faith by hearing, and hearing by the word of God: everything outside inspired Scripture not being of faith is sin.
    ... St. Basil the Great (330?-379), Moralia, xxvi. & lxxix. 22
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your people hold fast to Your word.
