Pascal: blindness

Wednesday, December 28, 2022
    Feast of the Holy Innocents
    As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.
    —James 2:26 (NIV)
    If it is an extraordinary blindness to live without investigating what we are, it is a terrible one to live an evil life, while believing in God.
    ... Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), Pensées (Thoughts) [1660], P.F. Collier & Son, 1910, #495, p. 165 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 2:26; Matt. 7:21-23; Luke 6:39; Acts 8:13-23; 1 Cor. 15:2; Gal. 5:13; Tit. 1:15-16; Jas. 2:14,17-20; Jude 1:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may faith produce fruit in my life.
