Tillotson: plain understanding

Saturday, January 28, 2017
    Feast of Thomas Aquinas, Priest, Teacher of the Faith, 1274
    And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.
    —Luke 24:27 (ESV)
    We have all the reason in the world to believe, that the goodness and justice of God is such, as to make nothing necessary to be believed by any man, which, by the help of due instruction, may not be made sufficiently plain to a common understanding.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694), Works of Dr. John Tillotson, v. V, London: J. F. Dove, for R. Priestley, 1820, Sermon LXXXVII, p. 38 (see the book)
    See also Luke 24:27; Ps. 25:8-9,12; Isa. 35:8; Jer. 31:33-34; Mic. 4:2; Luke 8:15; 24:44-45; John 7:17; 8:31-32,47; Rom. 1:19-20; Phil. 3:13-16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your truth is plain to see.
