Vain Disputings

Anthony Burgess:

Two doctors aloof from one another in disagreement. Wood eng Wellcome V0010907“For when the head is filled with topics, and none of the flamings of Christ’s love in the heart, how dry are all disputes? For too often dispute in the head weakens love in the heart. And what can our paper-industry add to the spotless truth of our Lord Jesus? O that opinions were down, and the Gospel up; and sides and parties might fall, and Christ stand; and that all names, sects and ways were low, and the Lord alone exalted!”

~Survey of the Survey of that Sum of Church Discipline, Epistle to the Reader
