Rauschenbusch: speculative theology

Wednesday, August 18, 2021
    [Jesus:] “Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”
    —Matthew 10:39 (NIV)
    Theologians have felt no hesitation in founding a system of speculative thought on the teachings of Jesus; and yet Jesus was never an inhabitant of the realm of speculative thought.
    ... Walter Rauschenbusch (1861-1918), Christianity and the Social Crisis, New York: Macmillan Co., 1907, p. 91 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 10:37-39; Mark 10:29-31; Luke 12:49-53
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your word is immediate.
