Bruce: impossible accommodations

Wednesday, May 31, 2017
    Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, “I believed, and so I spoke,” we also believe, and so we also speak, knowing that he who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and bring us with you into his presence.
    —2 Corinthians 4:13-14 (ESV)
    However the gospel may be defended, it cannot be defended by concessions which deprive it of its essence or which detract from our Saviour’s title to be called The Word of God.
    ... F. F. Bruce (1910-1990), The Apostolic Defense of the Gospel, London: Inter-Varsity Press, 1959, Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1959, p. 103 (see the book)
    See also 2 Cor. 4:13-14; John 1:1-4,14; 1 Cor. 1:22-24; Eph. 3:10-11; Col. 2:2-3; 1 John 1:1-2; Rev. 19:11-13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, focus my mind on the Word.
