QUOTE FOR TODAY

Borrowing today from Toby at Classical Presbyterian:

“When principles that run against your deepest convictions begin to win the day, then battle is your calling, and peace has become sin; you must, at the price of dearest peace, lay your convictions bare before friend and enemy, with all the fire of your faith.”

--Abraham Kuyper
(interesting fellow. Dutch like 1/4 of me, home schooled, studied Arabic, Armenian and physics in the "gymnasium" (as secondary schools were called), a minister and a politician. Called "bellringer of the common people". Very curious politics. Sure love this quote)

(.....the story will continue. It's hard to write. And probably hard for some to read. It's one of those I gotta get out of the way. But I can't do it on me own.)

I like this quote a lot ... and understand about the difficulty of writing this story. It will be interesting to see where it goes.
