  • Mood:

by the power of Christ alone

It is 3:57 PM Wednesday afternoon here by Lake Michigan. The sun came out this afternoon. I have been wandering the house and reading from a book titled, 'Theoretical-Practical Theology: Prolegomena' Volume 1 by Petrus Van Mastricht Translated By Todd M. Rester Edited By Joel R. Beeke.

I did not go anywhere this afternoon. I decided to just stay home this afternoon and wait for time to go by. Nothing came in the mail for me today except a sermon booklet. I will close with a quote from the above theological work-

"Of theologians
But let us also examine theologians, and Christians, and let every person examine himself, to determine whether he is, (1) taught, not by men only, or by books, but rather by God (Gal. 1:1); (2) taught, not for disputing or discoursing, but for living; (3) for living for himself, the world, or anything else, but for God; (4) and that through Christ, that is, by the power of Christ alone. These are the chief evidences, springing from our definition of theology, of an authentic theologian or Christian. For the nature of a matter and its innate character are not more perfectly perceived from any other source than from its careful definition. . ." pg.108,109
