CQOD: 08/25/05 -- Micklem: Christian ethics depends on Christianity's truth

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 25, 2005
Commemoration of John Owen, spiritual writer, 1683
    [Jesus:] Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment.
    -- John 7:24 (NIV)

    This concern for the rights and liberties and welfare of the backward peoples is rooted in the Christian ethic of justice and of the duty to help and protect the weak, upon the Christian valuation of man as of spiritual dignity and worth, as made for freedom, as a potential child of God. These principles have no validity unless the Christian view of man be true.
    ... Nathaniel Micklem (1888-1976), The Theology of Politics [1941]

Quiet time reflection:
    Help me to hold fast to the truth of your Word, and let me not fall into worldly ways of thinking.
