The Great Doctrine of the Bible

“To reconcile is to remove enmity between parties at variance with each other. In this case God is the reconciler. Man never makes reconciliation. …The enmity between God and man, the barrier which separated them, is removed by the act of God.  …effected by Jesus Christ, that is, by his death.  …our reconciliation to God is made the source and cause of our new creation, i.e. of our regeneration and holiness. God’s reconciliation to us must precede our reconciliation to him. This…is the great doctrine of the Bible.”  –Charles Hodge “2 Corinthians” p. 142

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
