Grace and truth, always grace and truth...

I think it was Richard Baxter who said...

In essentials unity,
in non-essentials liberty,
in all things charity.

One exam to go. New Testament Greek.
They said Rome wasn't built in a day.
Thankfully they didn't say that Greek couldn't be learnt in a day.
Elpis is Greek for hope.

And you know what, that's just peachy.
Wasn't it Augustine who said:

"By faithfulness we are collected and wound up into unity within ourselves, whereas we had been scattered abroad in multiplicity"?

And I believe it was Tozer who said:

"One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organizations do not constitute a church any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always."

So what was the point you were making? Something about essentials? Something about unity? Maybe you weren't making a point. I don't know, you just got me thinking.

I hope your exam goes/went well.
