Jones: written in reality

Monday, June 17, 2013
    Commemoration of Samuel & Henrietta Barnett, Social Reformers, 1913 & 1936
    Test everything. Hold on to the good.
    —1 Thessalonians 5:21 (NIV)
    If we believe that the Christian faith is written into the structure of reality, as well as in the pages of Scripture, then we will not only allow men to think freely but will urge them to do so. For the facts, wherever discovered, will bring men out to the same place—at the fact of Christ.
    ... E. Stanley Jones (1884-1973), The Christ of the American Road, Abingdon-Cokesbury Press, 1944, p. 91 (see the book)
    See also 1 Thess. 5:21; Ps. 19:1-4; 34:8; 119:103; Eccl. 7:29; 8:16-17; Luke 12:57; Rom. 1:18-22; 2 Cor. 13:5-6; 1 Pet. 2:2-3; 1 John 4:1-2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You even make doubts serve You.
