Salmon: a new good or a new evil?

Wednesday, May 13, 2015
    So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
    —Genesis 1:28-29 (KJV)
    We have still much to learn as to the laws according to which the mind and body act on one another, and according to which one mind acts on another; but it is certain that a great part of this mutual action can be reduced to general laws, and that the more we know of such laws the greater our power to benefit others will be. If, when, through the operation of such laws, surprising events take place, [we may] cry out, ... “Such is the will of God,” instead of setting ourselves to inquire whether it was the will of God to give us power to bring about or prevent such results, then our conduct is not piety but sinful laziness.
    ... George Salmon (1819-1904), “A Sermon on the Work of the Holy Spirit”, Appendix, in The Evidences of the Work of the Holy Spirit, Dublin: Hodges, Smith, 1859, p. 30 (see the book)
    See also Gen. 1:28-29; Pr. 1:7; 3:19-20; 18:15; 24:5; Luke 11:52; Acts 18:24-28; 1 Cor. 13:9-12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You speak to the whole person.
