Christian Quote of the Week (or so!):
The Light of the Spirit Required to Understand the Things of God
"Although there be much light in the Scriptures to guide men's way to God's glory and their own happiness, yet it will all be to small purpose if the eyes of our understanding be darkened and blinded. If you shall surround a man with daylight, except he open his eyes, he cannot see. The Scriptures are a clear sun of life and righteousness; but the blind soul encompassed with that light is nothing the wiser, but thinks the lamp of the Word shines not, because it sees not. It hath its own dungeon within it. Therefore the Spirit of God must open the eyes of the blind, and enlighten the eyes of the understanding, that the soul may see wonderful things in God's law."
-– Hugh Binning (1627-1653), from "The Common Principles of the Christian Religion", in The Works of Hugh Binning,   Vol. I
