Georgia Warnke, 'Gadamer' p. 2
The common thought is that this life hid with Christ in God is to be lived in the emotions, and consequently all the attention of the soul is directed toward them, and as they are satisfactory or otherwise, the soul rests or is troubled. Now, the truth is, that this life is not to be lived in the emotions at all, but in the will; and therefore, if only the will is kept steadfastly abiding in its center, God's will, the varying states of emotion do not in the least disturb or affect the reality of life.
Hannah Whitall Smith, The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life, p. 57

While most people consider feeling supremely important, I hope you will have discovered that what you think about love will control your behavior, and that the desired feelings will come as a result of the right thinking and the right actions.

They sit before you as my people, and they hear what you say but they will not do it; for with their lips they show much love, but their heart is set on their gain.

About Wirkungsgeschichte

25th March 2011

 

Wirkungsgeschichte.com is dedicated to the idea that the gospel is not a
series of propositional truths to be argued, but a reality to be experienced.
The good news is found in the creative interaction of the Holy Spirit and
human culture.  Wirkungsgeschichte.com brings this interaction into focus
with the hope of revealing the fullness of Christ who transcends any particular
culture or generation.  The goal is to develop a “praise song of ideas” which engenders worship, service and love.

 

Autumn Japanese Maple by Garrick Liddell

“Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;


his greatness no one can fathom.


One generation commends your work to another;


they tell of your mighty acts.


They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty-


I will meditate upon your wonderful works.


They tell of the power of your awesome works-

.

and I will proclaim your great deeds.


They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your


righteousness.”

………………………………………………………………….Psalm 145:3-7
