Half-Representations Are Dangerous


Hugh Binning, Works, p. 53:

Labour to keep the right and entire representation of God in thy sight; his whole name, strong, merciful, and just; great, good, and holy. I say, keep both in thy view, for half-representations are dangerous, either to beget presumption and security when thou lookest on mercy alone; or despair when thou lookest on justice and power alone. Let thy soul consider all jointly, that it may receive a mixed impression of all. And this is the holy composition and temper of a believer: Rejoice with trembling, love with fear.
