Quote of the Day: Augustine

St. Augustine writing to St. Jerome:

“For, I admit to your Charity that it is from those books alone of the Scriptures, which are now called canonical, that I have learned to pay them such honor and respect as to believe most firmly that not one of their authors has erred in writing anything at all. If I do find anything in those books which seems contrary to truth, I decide that either the text [particular copy] is corrupt, or the translator did not follow what was really said, or that I failed to understand it.”

    St. Augustine put it very nicely.

    Generally the problem for me is I failed to understand it.

  2. 2 Scripture Zealot

    Many of us think we can when we haven’t.
