It was not sects, or creeds, or doctrines, or
churches
,
or ecclesiastical organizations!

(MacDuff, "A Chapter in Providence and Grace")

It is not dead doctrine, dry formulated dogma
which the soul needs, but a living Being.

Paul thus exults, in what may be called a dying
testimony, "I know WHOM I have believed."

It was not . . .
  sects,
  or creeds,
  or doctrines,
  or churches
,
  or ecclesiastical organizations
,
that the dying hero clung to, in the
hour of departure, but . . .
  the glorious Person of the divine Immanuel,
  the living Presence of the ever living, ever loving Savior;
  the Brother,
  the Friend on the throne,
whom he had learned to love more
dearly than all the world beside!
