From my favorite new blog, Reboot Christianity, a quick quote from the first chapter of Calvin’s Insitutes:
“Without knowledge of self, there is no knowledge of God. Our wisdom, insofar as it ought to be deemed true and solid wisdom, consists almost entirely of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves. But as these are connected by many ties, it is not easy to determine which of the two precedes and gives birth to the other.”
p.s. I highly, highly recommend their series on Cognitive Biases in Christians.
