What God Has Joined Together

Dutch ethicist Jochem Douma, echoing one of Herman Bavinck's deeply held convictions:
Domatics without ethics is empty; ethics without dogmatics is blind.
--quoted in Ron Gleason, Herman Bavinck: Pastor, Churchman, Statesman, and Theologian (P&R, 2010), 112

Great quote - thanks for posting this. It seems as if taking one to the exclusion of the other can become even more detrimental than being 'empty' or 'blind', it can be quite dangerous.
