Rightly Understanding God and Man…

Requires faith-

One ought not to expect to recognize God from His words unless faith be present (for if that be lacking, whatever you assert of Him will seem an idle tale), is also true in the study of man. For unless faith be present, so that a man believes that every word that proceedeth from God is true, he will be as far from knowing himself as is the distance between spirit and flesh. — H. Zwingli
