Wisdom of the Ages – Charles Hodge

When a state resolves that religious instruction shall be banished from the schools…it virtually resolves on self-destruction

Wisdom of the Ages

“It is a fact that unless children are brought up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, they, and the society which they constitute or control, will go to destruction. Consequently, when a state resolves that religious instruction shall be banished from the schools and other literary institutions, it virtually resolves on self-destruction”
– Charles Hodge (1871)

Wisdom of the Ages – Herman Bavinck

A theologian is a person who makes bold to speak about God because he speaks out of God and through God

Wisdom of the Ages

“A theologian is a person who makes bold to speak about God because he speaks out of God and through God. To profess theology is to do holy work. It is a priestly ministration in the house of the Lord. It is itself a service of worship, a consecration of mind and heart to the honour of His name”
– Herman Bavinck

Wisdom of the Ages – B.B. Warfield

The saving power resides exclusively, not in the act of faith or the attitude of faith or nature of faith, but in the object of faith

Wisdom of the Ages

“It is never on account of its formal nature as a psychic act that faith is conceived in Scripture to be saving. It is not, strictly speaking, even faith in Christ that saves, but Christ that saves through faith. The saving power resides exclusively, not in the act of faith or the attitude of faith or nature of faith, but in the object of faith”
– B.B. Warfield
