Augustine: whose is truth?

Saturday, April 30, 2016
    Commemoration of Pandita Mary Ramabai, Translator of the Scriptures, 1922
    ... to [false brothers] we did not yield in submission even for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might be preserved for you.
    —Galatians 2:5 (ESV)
    The truth is neither mine nor his nor another’s; but belongs to us all whom Thou callest to partake of it, warning us terribly, not to account it private to ourselves, lest we be deprived of it.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), Confessions [397], Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1886, XII.xxv, p. 342 (see the book)
    See also Gal. 2:5; John 14:6; 1 Cor. 14:4; Gal. 4:16; Eph. 1:13; 2 Pet. 1:20-21
Quiet time reflection:
    Praise be to You, Lord, for Your truth that illuminates Your church.
