Tertullian


“…a controversy over the Scriptures can, clearly, produce no other effect than help to upset either the stomach or the brain.”

-Tertullian

I like it, studying at John Wesley College now, lots of work to do, busy reading and getting easily distracted by erroneous passages and things, came accross this one this morning. Tertullian is a funny guy.

Hey, Gus, I'm glad that you have added the comments section.

Tertullian was one of those strange early Christians, one whom I like quite a bit since he was African!

He was of course also the person who said that the "blood of the martyrs is the seed of the faith". Naturally one needs to keep this within the context in which it was written. However, his courage for, and commitment to, the faith is inspiring!

How I wish we had more creative, non-conformist, committed Christ followers in this day and age! The world needs them!

Keep up the great work!

Blessings,

Dion
