¡Academic Danger!

02/22/2010

One of the dangers of our time is permitting the academic to displace the spiritual, that is, thinking that academic attainment qualifies us for spiritual revelation.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  The only thing that qualifies a man for spiritual revelation is moral fitness: a holy life, a life under the control of the Spirit of God, who alone can reveal to him the will of God and enlighten and illumine the Word of God.  Moral fitness is the great essential.

-Joseph S. Carroll, from “How to Worship Jesus Christ”
