Eckardtesian Thought: I think, therefore I write . . .
We live in an age in which people tend to think there is no such thing as absolute truth. One person’s ‘truth’ is as good as another’s, so they say. And who are we to say that what we believe is absolutely true, and that anyone who disagrees is wrong? Is that not arrogant? But we must remember whose truth we are referring to. Not ours, but our Lord’s. The church of Ephesus in Revelation had forgotten their first love; let us remember ours: the Lord Jesus himself; and therefore it is in humility, not pride, that we insist on his truth and no other. And only his truth can save us: his Word teaches us that we have sinned and are sinners; and his Word teaches us that our salvation is and only can be in him; for only he could make sufficient atonement for it, and only he has done so. We embrace, and must be stubborn about embracing, this truth. Sermon for Midweek of Lent III.
