Cool Quote

"I am the man who with the utmost daring discovered what had already been discovered before"

-G.K. Chesterton "Orthodoxy" pg 4

As a whole this book failed to keep my attention, but it did have some slam dunk quotes. This was one of my favorites. I think it perfectly describes what this blog is going for. Just rehashing and reflecting on what has already been discovered.

I also think this quote is an apt description of the history of Christian thought. Pretty much every generation of Christianity finds in its own way what has already been discovered before. From Wycliff to Luther to Wesley to Barth and to whatever other big name you want to throw in there. They discovered in a fresh way that which had already been discovered before.

That's all I got for today…

Law/Gospel, Judgment/Grace, Condemnation/Love, and the Dentist…

This week, upon noticing that the cavity on my lower front tooth had grown, I thought it was time to set up an appointment with a new dentist. As this appointment for what was dubbed "a thorough examination" began to approach, I noticed myself getting a little anxious; even to the point of a Panic Attack. It was here that I had a sort of new realization about why I, and I think others, hate going to the dentist.
