Micklem: belief and freedom

Sunday, March 22, 2020
    ... always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.
    —2 Timothy 3:7 (NIV)
    The scientist who lives laborious days in the disinterested pursuit of truth, the artist who will starve in a garret if only he may express the beauty he has seen, the martyr who will obey God in the scorn of consequence, are all religious men or, at least, are men who illustrate that principle which lies behind religion. Truth, Beauty, Goodness—these are sacred, the object of man’s true love and reverence. He to whom nothing is sacred, all questions are open, and the distinction between right and wrong is blurred, is an enslaved, not an emancipated, spirit.
    ... Nathaniel Micklem (1888-1976), The Theology of Politics, London: Oxford University Press, 1941, p. 58 (see the book)
    See also 2 Tim. 3:7; Gal. 4:3; 5:1; Eph. 2;1-2; Col. 2:8,20; Heb. 2:14-15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are freedom.
