A strong challenge to modern "spirituality"

ביקורת משתמש  - David Gough - Christianbook.com

It is difficult to know just how to characterize the theology of William Law. Indeed, it seems to have evolved throughout his lifetime. A defrocked Episcopalian minister, he later wielded influence on ... קרא סקירה מלאה

This reading is beyond my expectations. It stimulates to give thoughts to issues that you would otherwise consider trivial. A little leaven leavens the whole lump. Stirs hunger and thirst to go deeper into God. קרא סקירה מלאה

עמוד 102 - Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
עמוד 25 - I count not myfelf to have apprehended ; but this one thing I do, forgetting thofe things which are behind, and reaching forth unto thofe things which are before, I prefs toward the mark, for the prize of the high calling of God in Chrift Jefus.
עמוד 244 - ... that is best, to live according to reason and order, and to act in every part of your life in conformity to the will of God. Study how to fill your heart full of the love of God and the love of your neighbour, and then be content to be no deeper a scholar, no finer a gentleman, than these tempers will make you.
עמוד 293 - I THANK my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now...
עמוד 40 - He will tell you with great gravity that it is a dangerous thing for a man that has been used to get money ever to leave it off. If thoughts of religion happen at any time to steal into his head, Calidus contents himself with thinking that he never was a friend to heretics and infidels, that he has always been civil to the minister of his parish, and very often given something to the charity...
עמוד 170 - KNOW ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize ? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown ; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly ; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air : but I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection : lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.
עמוד 83 - And shall I withhold a little money or food from my fellowcreature for fear he should not be good enough to receive it of me ? Do I beg of God to deal with me, not according to my merit, but according to His own great goodness ; and shall I be so absurd as to withhold my charity from a poor...
עמוד 70 - ... for the head, in drops for the nerves, in cordials for the stomach, and in saffron for her tea. If you visit Flavia on the Sunday, you will always meet good company ; you will know what is doing in the world, you will hear the last lampoon, be told who wrote it, and who is meant by every name that is in it. You will hear what plays were acted that week, which is the finest song in the opera, who was intolerable at the last assembly, and what games are most in fashion. Flavia thinks they are atheists...
עמוד 240 - ... we have all of us called it ours in our turn, though it stands and drops its masters, as it drops its leaves. You see my son, this wide and large firmament over our heads, where the sun and moon and all the stars appear in their turns. If you...
עמוד 70 - If you would know who is rude and ill-natured, who is vain and foppish, who lives too high, and who is in debt: If you would know what is the quarrel at a certain house, or who and who are in love: If you would know how late Belinda comes home at night, what...
