Phelps: knowledge

Saturday, July 1, 2017
    Commemoration of John & Henry Venn, Priests, Evangelical Divines, 1813, 1873
    How can you say, “We are wise, for we have the law of the LORD,” when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely? The wise will be put to shame; they will be dismayed and trapped. Since they have rejected the word of the LORD, what kind of wisdom do they have?
    —Jeremiah 8:8-9 (NIV)
    A knowledge of the Bible without a college course is more valuable than a college course without the Bible.
    ... William Lyon Phelps (1865-1943), Human Nature in the Bible, New York: Scribner, 1922, p. ix (see the book)
    See also Jer. 8:8-9; John 9:41; John 5:39-40; Rom. 1:22-23; 1 Cor. 1:19-23; 3:18-20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, send Your Spirit to fill me with Your word.
