Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Gordon H. Clark: Quote of the Day

That true religion is preceded by or in some way founded on the activity of natural reason is an idea that has been and continues to be widely prevalent. The proper procedure is pictured as beginning with a proof of the existence of God. When the unbeliever is convinced by an argument drawn from nature, then he may next be shown the antecedent probability of a special revelation, and finally the reasonableness of the Scriptures. Not only has this natural theology in its medieval form been adopted as the official position of Romanism, but many Protestant theologians also accept it in some form or other.

Of course, Gordon H. Clark was not speaking approvingly here.  But it does show that appealing to natural reason as a basis for opposing gay marriage in the civic realm is doomed to failure.  R. S. Clark, of the Heidelblog, ought to know better.
