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 . . .
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 Friend on the throne,
whom he had learned to love more
dearly than all the world beside!
