Tillotson: plain truth

Monday, July 3, 2023
    Feast of Thomas the Apostle
    And he said to man, ‘The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.’”
    —Job 28:28 (NIV)
    It seems to be very hard, and if that would do any good, might be a just matter of complaint, that we are fallen into so profane and skeptical an age, which takes a pleasure and a pride in unraveling almost all the received principles both of religion and reason, so that we are put many times to prove those things, which can hardly be made plainer than they are of themselves.
    ... John Tillotson (1630-1694), Works of Dr. John Tillotson, v. I, London: J. F. Dove, for R. Priestley, 1820, Sermon I, p. 332 (see the book)
    See also Job 28:28; Ps. 19:1-6; Isa. 40:26; Jer. 10:10-13; John 1:9; Rom. 1:18-19; Col. 3:16; 1 Tim. 2:3-4; Jas. 3:13; 1 John 4:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may You overcome the resistance of _____ and _____ to Your truth.
