  • Samuel at Gilgal

    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

PIETY

Gardiner Spring:

Gardiner SpringBy piety, we mean:

  •  the religion of principle, in distinction from the religion of impulse;

  • a spiritual religion, in distinction from a religion of forms;

  • a religion of which the Spirit of God, and not the wisdom or the will of man, is the author;

  • a self-denying and not a self-indulgent religion;

  • a religion that has a heavenward tendency, and not an earthly tendency;

  • a practical religion, in opposition to the abstractions of theory;

  • a religion that is so full of Christ, that the crucified One is at the basis of its duties and hopes; its center, its living head, and its glory.
