Fatherly Wisdom

I hope every so often to post edifying quotes from the Church Fathers. The point? We should always remember that Christianity is a historical faith. These fathers of the faith (i.e. early Christian leaders and teachers) have so many words of wisdom for us, and we dare not make the mistake of overlooking the benefits God has for us through their teaching:

We make the Holy Scriptures the canon and the rule of every dogma; we of necessity look upon that, and receive alone that which may be made comfortable to the intention of those writings.

* Gregory of Nyssa, On the Soul and Resurrection

  1. I like this quote. I’m very interested in reading more of Mr. Nyssa as I’ve heard a number of good things about him.
