St. John Chrysostom: poor reason

Sunday, September 13, 2020
    Feast of John Chrysostom, Bishop of Constantinople, Teacher, 407
    The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.
    —Romans 8:6-7 (NIV)
    Poor human reason, when it trusts in itself, substitutes the strangest absurdities for the highest divine concepts.
    ... St. John Chrysostom (345?-407)
    See also Rom. 8:6-7; Ps. 14:1; Rom. 8:13; Gal. 6:8; Eph. 4:18-19; Jas. 1:13-15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, send Your Spirit, so that Your people understand Your word.
