CQOD: 08/07/07 -- Bruce: the best defense

Christian Quotation of the Day

August 7, 2007
Commemoration of John Mason Neale, Priest, Poet, 1866
    You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. But by faith we eagerly await through the Spirit the righteousness for which we hope. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.
    -- Galatians 5:4-6 (NIV)

    For all the vigor of his polemic, St. Paul does not content himself with the denunciation of error, but finds the best defense against its insidious approaches in a closer adherence to the love of God and faith in Christ.
    ... Frederick F. Bruce (1910-1991)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, turn the world away from error to Your Truth.
