True Christianity & Absurd Christianity

Jonathan Edwards writes about the nature of true and false Christianity,

“Thus we see how full, clear, and abundant, the evidence from Scripture is, that those who are truly gracious, are under the government of that lamb-like, dove-like Spirit of Jesus Christ, and that this is essentially and eminently the nature of the saving grace of the gospel, and the proper spirit of true Christianity…

Nothing can be a greater absurdity, than a morose, hard, close, high-spirited, spiteful, true Christian.”

[On Religious Affections…, The Works of Jonathan Edwards, Volume 1 (Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 1834), 306, 307]
