Owen: false wisdom

Wednesday, September 11, 2019
    Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
    —1 John 4:8 (NIV)
    That wisdom which cannot teach me that God is love, shall ever pass for folly.
    ... John Owen (1616-1683), Of Communion with God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost [1657], in Works of John Owen, v. II, London: Johnson & Hunter, 1851, p. 82 (see the book)
    See also 1 John 4:8; 1 Cor. 1:18,21,26-28; 2:14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your love is the only true wisdom.
