Consider the Romance Have we considered the loveliness of the heart of Christ? Perhaps beauty is not a category that comes naturally to mind when we think about Christ. Maybe we think of God and Christ in terms of truth, not beauty. But the whole reason we care about sound doctrine is for the sake of preserving God’s beauty, just as the whole reason we care about effective focal lenses on a camera is to capture with precision the beauty…

Today’s post is excerpted from Justin S. Holcomb’s Know the Creeds and Councils and is sponsored by MasterLectures.
