Christians often talk far too glibly and easily about God. “I have heard students,” says Professor Eugene Rosenstock-Huessy, “talking about the attributes of God in a way that made me feel ashamed. They knew everything about God except that He was listening to them. They showed no sense of shame.” They were theological students. Dietrich Bonhoeffer says more than once in his letters from prison that he finds a continually deepening meaning in the fact that the Israelites never allowed themselves to pronounce the name of God.
John H. Oldham
He who heeds instruction is on the path to life, but he who rejects reproof goes astray.
The Revised Standard Version
