Daily Thought: God's Perfect Revelation

"The Bible, or the Old and New Testaments, in Hebrew and Greek, contains a full and perfect revelation of God and his will, adapted to man as he now is.  It speaks of man as he was, and also as he will be hereafter be; but it dwells on man as he is, and as he ought to be, as its peculiar and appropriate theme.  It is not, then, a treatise on man as he was, nor on man as he will be; but on man as he is; and as he ought to be; not as he is physically, astronomically, geologically, politically, or metaphysically; but as he is and ought to be, morally and religiously." ~ Alexander Campbell, The Christian System, p. 3
