But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Andrew Fuller Friday: Fuller on Philosophy’s Limits

Written by

“Philosophy may expand our ideas of creation; but it neither inspires a love to the moral character of the Creator, nor a well-grounded hope of eternal life. Philosophy, at most, can only place us at the top of Pisgah: there, like Moses, we must die; it gives us no possession of the good...

In local bookstores, you’ll find the books about Jesus shelved in the “spirituality” corner. But the real Jesus and his teachings cannot be confined in such a way. We often tend to speak about Jesus’ work on the cross in spiritual terms alone, and we tend to think about our...
