Faith is a feeling- Schleiermacher

[T]hose systematizers are less anxious to present the details of religion than to subordinate them one to the other, and to deduce them from a higher. Nothing is of less importance to religion, for it knows nothing of deducing and connecting. There is no single fact in it that can be called original and chief.

    I like Scheiermacher! A person wrote me to tell me that I was proffering mere opinion…as distinct from the facts of theologians. Interesting, huh? Well, I posted on the matter.

    Nice post!

      An opinion doesn’t become a fact because a person is a ‘theologian’. Any claim to know anything is highly dubious unless based on God’s revelation in the Scriptures. Unless the all-knowing God has spoken clearly we are ALL in the dark – don’t you think?
