Theology Perverted

The new light which the Christian receives is a light of the knowledge of the glory of God. . . . To find God everywhere of necessity leads to conceiving of all religious knowledge as organically one. . . . Where it is not accepted, theology is apt to become even in the eyes of its friends a mere instrument for the salvation of man.
