"for I know whom I have believed and I am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until that day.” (2 Timothy 1:12b NAS95)

The following quote from Robinson is the opening paragraph from an article that is well worth the read.  I came across it looking for something not directly related but found it worthwhile.  One could easily place "post-modernism" in the article instead of "modernism" and it would ring just as true today as when it was written some 75 years ago.   It is from the 1935 April BibSac.

The Lost Chord in Current Protestantism 1
Wm. Childs Robinson

Professor of Ecclesiastical History and Missions, Columbia Theological Seminary

"Man doth not live by bread alone; but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of Jehovah. However, our day has lost her anchor in the Word of God and is wandering hither and thither in a feverish quest for something that is certain and stable. The things that men live by are to be found neither in the plausible opinions of modernism, nor in the ecclesiastical dogmas of Romanism. The pillars of life are the certainties which God engenders in the hearts of His people by His Word and His Spirit."
