The Worship Quote of the Week for (03/07/2000):

Head and Heart
Today's WORSHIP QUOTE is a short thought from the quill of Blaise Pascal, a
seventeenth century Frenchman who was not only a leading mathematician and
scientist of his day, but also a noted religious philosopher.

The knowledge of God is very far from the love of Him.

- Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)

[There is certainly nothing wrong with a thorough command of the Scriptures
or a well-developed understanding of systematic theology. (Wouldn't it be
marvelous if we all knew even more about the written word of God?) But
Christian worship combines this biblical understanding of who God is (and
what he has done) with the loving response of his people, those who have been
forgiven of their sins by his amazing grace.]

Have a great week,
