Upon This Rests Our Whole Hope of Future Blessedness

Upon God’s faithfulness rests our whole hope of future blessedness.  Only as He is faithful will His covenants stand and His promises be honoured.  Only as we have complete assurance that He is faithful may we live in peace and loo forward with assurance to the life to come.

Nourishing Food for the Soul

The faithfulness of God is a datum of sound theology but to the believer it becomes far more than that: it passes through the processes of the understanding and goes on to become nourishing food for the soul.

Heresy Emerges from the Swamp of Bad Theology or Over Emphasized Truth

I think it might be demonstrated that almost every heresy that has afflicted the church through the years has arisen from believing about God things that are not true, or from overemphasizing certain true things so as to obscure other things equally true.  To magnify any attribute to the exclusion of another is to head straight for one of the dismal swamps of theology; and yet we are all constantly tempted to do just that.

All of God’s Acts

All of God’s acts are consistent with all of His attributes.  No attribute contradicts the other, but all harmonize and blend into each other in the infinite abyss of the Godhead.  All that God does agrees with all that God is and being and doing are one in Him.

The universe operates as an orderly system, not by impersonal laws but by the creative voice of the immanent and universal Presence, the Logos.

The Divine Doctrine of Omnipresence

The doctrine of the divine omnipresence personalizes man’s relation to the universe in which he finds himself.  This great central truth gives meaning to all truths and imparts supreme value to all his little life.  God is present, near him, next to him, and this God sees him and knows through and through.
