The eternal Word of the Father

"And as the speech is in the mind & the mind in the speech, so the father is in the sonne, & the sonne in the father."

—William Perkins, An Exposition of the Symbole or Creede of the Apostles (Cambridge, 1595), p. 138.

Good to see you quoting a Puritan. A nice change from Barth and Dylan!

Yours,

Guy Davies

Thanks, Guy. I have spent a lot of time with William Perkins -- I always enjoy reading him, even when I think he's a million miles away from the truth. But as for Puritans: don't forget that Bob Dylan himself has always been a bit of a Puritan at heart too!
