Mulford: the transcendental communique

May 18, 2009

    Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David. This is my gospel, for which I am suffering even to the point of being chained like a criminal. But God's word is not chained.
    -- 2 Timothy 2:8-9 (NIV)

    The Word of God is the informing power of the revelation of God in the finite world. It is not, by any figure, to be identified with a book, or a temple, or a minister, or a shrine.
    ... Elisha Mulford (1833-1885), The Republic of God, Boston, New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1893, p. 215 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, let Your saving word go out to Your people.
