That is the acme of Christian achievement and one of the most moving accomplishments of omnipotence.

Apostasy is the total and complete denial of th...Apostasy is the total and complete denial of the Christian faith. Heresy is more like the wolf in sheep's clothing. It nearly always is a distortion of the revelatory witness, maintaining an appearance of the truth while undercutting its meaning. Heresy distorts, re-interprets to the point of contradiction, or over-emphasizes one aspect of the mosaic to the point of reducing the faith to one dimension of it. Heresy is a caricature of the revealed faith.

The Christian faith is the most exciting drama ...The Christian faith is the most exciting drama that ever staggered the imagination of man – and the dogma is the drama. That drama is summarized quite clearly in the creeds of the Church, and if we think it dull it is because either we have never really read those amazing documents or have recited them so often and so mechanically as to have lost all sense of their meaning. The plot pivots upon a single character, and the whole action is the answer to a single problem: What think ye of Christ?

Israel believed that God was a saving God, not ...Israel believed that God was a saving God, not because some thinker evolved the conception from his fertile mind, but because He had revealed Himself in their history as a saving God. He had chosen Israel, when Israel was weak and in bondage, and He had sent Moses down to Egypt in His name to lead them forth. By a great and wonderful deliverance He had delivered them, and through all their history they could not forget it. That deliverance was regulative for all their thinking of God. They believed that He was the controller of history just because it was in history that He had revealed His character to them. They believed that He was the controller of Nature just because He had used Nature as the instrument of that deliverance. In the subsequent history God shows Himself a saving God repeatedly, and uses both Nature and men in whom is His spirit to effect deliverance.
