If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.

– St. Augustine, Sermons

  1. I wonder what people think when they read this quote.

    Initially, I would think that many would say “Amen!” with the thought in the back of the mind that there are “those people” who pick and choose what they believe and yet, think that “I believe in the whole gospel.”

    So, who is this “I” who believes?

    How would one know that they don’t pick and choose?


  2. I think that one would know that they dont pick and choose what Scriptures they believe by struggling with Scripture.
    Not all of it is easy to understand or put into practise. Even the apostle Peter said that about Paul and his teaching.
