PILLAR & GROUND OF THE TRUTH



“…because the Church is the pillar and ground of the truth (1 Tim 3:15)  by which the world is to be saved, the Lord has not left its advising to us but has given us instruction as to how it ought to be behaved in the Church of the Living God…I cannot help believing that there is no line so wise or well or so loyal as simply to let God order His own house in His own way and gladly range ourselves by His side. Let us beware lest, in arranging things for oneself and so as to fit our personal prejudices, we build up a kingdom indeed, but not to God or one which He will neither own nor bless.”
