Faith And Love

Faith And Love

If faith and theological reflection concerned only the mind, there would be no way to distinguish genuine Christianity from nominal Christianity. A nominal Christian mentally assents to the truths of Christianity, but those truths do not grip his heart and so re-orient his affections to glory in God. Faith in and reflection on the truth must include a love for and joy in the truth and in God.

Andrew Fuller (1754 – 1815)
