Stackhouse Quotes

This term in Systematic Theology here at Regent, professor John Stackhouse gave some wonderful lectures. Contained in those lectures were some very quotable statements, some humerous, some serious, all pithy. I didn’t have the presence of mind to write them down myself, but thankfully, classmate Dan did.

Probably his [Paul's] love notes were full of theology, which is probably why he was single.

The authority of the Bible does not reside in the text of the Bible. The authority of the Bible resides in the Author of the Bible who continues to teach us from His book.

The lecture is a transfer of data from the professor’s notes to the notes of the student without it passing through the minds of either.

Faith is not ratcheting up our beliefs so that there are no doubts. Faith is following Jesus, doubts and all.

Some of you could get higher grades if you were just disobedient to God.

One can be strictly just without love, but one cannot be properly loving without holiness.

Needless to say, I really enjoyed the class.

    My favorite is faith is not ratcheting up our beliefs so there is not faith, but is following Jesus with our doubts. (might have mangled the quote a bit.)

    Thank you for this post.
