A Great Quote

This morning I read an article about the historical beginnings of the Bible Institute of Los Angeles in the Biola Connections magazine.

I really liked this notable quote by Lyman Stewart:

At the ceremony for the laying of the cornerstone of the 13-story building downtown, Lyman Stewart pledged that the Institute in all its teaching would be “intolerant of error, but have a love for the souls of men as wide as the world. It will fellowship with, and bid Godspeed to all who love the truth as revealed in the Holy Scriptures.” (bold mine)

That is truly a great quote!

It is solidly Biblical, yet uncompromising.

It is loving, yet true to the gospel.

It demonstrates that there is such a thing as absolute truth.

Such truth can be found only on the pages of the Bible, through what is revealed to us by God through Holy Spirit led men as they were guided to record the Holy Scriptures.
