Milton: tolerance of differences among believers

Tuesday, January 19, 2021
    Commemoration of Wulfstan, Bishop of Worcester, 1095
    One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind.
    —Romans 14:5 (NIV)
    [If] there be any difference among professed believers as to the sense of Scripture, it is their duty to tolerate such difference in each other, until God shall have revealed the truth to all.
    ... John Milton (1608-1674), from “A Treatise on Christian Doctrine,” in The Prose Works of John Milton, v. IV, London: Bohn, 1853, p. 444 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 14:4-8,23; John 14:26; 16:13; 1 Cor. 2:9-13; Eph. 4:11-15; Tit. 1:15; Heb. 11:6; 1 John 2:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, unite us regardless our differences.
