Breaking news: Richard Baxter anticipates the failure of the Enlightenment project in 1656!

"This is the sanctification of your studies, when they are devoted to God, and when he is the end, the object and the life of them all. And therefore, I shall presume to tell you, by the way, that it is a grand error and of dangerous consequence in Christian academies ... that they study the creature before the Redeemer, and set themselves to physics, and metaphysics and the mathematics, before they set themselves to theology -- whereas no man that hath not the vitals of theology is capable of going beyond a fool in philosophy. Theology must lay the foundation and lead the way of all our studies."

From The Reformed Pastor, Chap. 1, Sect. 1

In other words, academic study - biblical truth = postmodern chaos.

Download a free, premium-quality audio recording of The Reformed Pastor from ChristianAudio during the month of May. Highly recommended! (HT: Justin Taylor)
