More Wisdom from Fee

I thought this gem from Fee was worth sharing.

“It is hardly possible in a day like ours that one will not have denominational, theological, or ideological preferences. The difficulty lies in allowing that it might really be true that ‘all things are ours,’ including those whom we think God would do better to be without. But God is full of surprises; and he may choose to minister to us from the ‘strangest’ of sources, if we were but more truly ‘in Christ’ and therefore free in him to learn and to love…But to be ‘of Christ’ is also to be free from the tyrannies of one’s own narrowness, free to learn even from those with whom one may disagree.” – Fee, The First Epistle to the Corinthians, NICNT, 156.

Αυτω η δοξα,

  1. For some reason that one’s a brain twister for me. “free from the tyrannies of one’s own narrowness” is pretty brilliant. I need to ponder this more because it’s relevant. Thanks for posting it.

    I referred to this commentary (library copy) when I was studying the first four chapters of 1 Corinthians and I think it’s great.
