Augustine: all or nothing at all

Saturday, December 2, 2017
    Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
    —Psalm 119:105 (KJV)
    In an authority so high [as Scripture], admit but one officious lie, and there will not remain a single passage of those apparently difficult to practice or to believe, which on the same most pernicious rule may not be explained as a lie uttered by the author willfully and to serve a purpose.
    ... St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430), Ep. 28 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 119:105; 1 Sam. 15:29; Rom. 3:2; Tit. 1:2; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Heb. 6:17-18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Spirit speaks to me in Scripture.
