Historical Apologetics Quote of the Day! July 16, 2012

From Martin Luther – “Find God first in the Cradle (The incarnation), then on the cross (the atonement), and then in the flower (creation).  

Wonderful day of class with Dr. Craig Parton leading us in Historical Apologetics, meaning – using history as an apologetic and the historical model to demonstrate the validity of the Christian faith.  When speaking with folks about the existence of God, etc., Luther found it best to not begin with creation, but rather take them to the person and work of Christ, and then to other issues such as creation, the universe, etc.  

Wise advise!  

Au Revoir,

Gene
