9781331453635: The Justification of God: Lectures for War-Time on a Christian Theodicy (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Justification of God: Lectures for War-Time on a Christian Theodicy

The doubts that unsettle men most today are those that rise not from science but from society, not from the irrational but the unjust. And the very nature of that question is a great step to the answer. Every great question is pointed in proportion as it is moralised - as we are made to discuss business rather than being, the doings rather than the laws Of the world, soul rather than substance, and the con science rather than the processes either Of God or man. It will then be found that the justification of God to man is not possible except to the conscience of man as justified by God. We have God's justice as a gift and not as a conclusion. God vindicates His justice by saving man from the doubt of it, and not by demonstrating to him the truth Of it.

About the Author:

Peter Taylor Forsyth (1848-1921) preached and pastored for twenty five years before becoming principal of Hackney College in London where he taught Systematic Theology and Preaching. Forsyth converted from theological liberalism to classical Christianity in the mid 1880s. The theological transition was, in his own words, from a lover of love to an object of grace. A theologian of the cross, Forsyth is well known for his publications The Work of Christ, Cruciality of the Cross, and The Person and Place of Jesus Christ.
