John Fonville: “When it comes to truth, we do not study truth for truth’s sake. We do not study just so we can win theological arguments. We study truth so that we might be led to the Truth. We are not saved by propositions but by a person. To be sure, propositional truth is vital but only in so much as it points men to Christ who is the Truth.
“Without question, the Christian faith is propositional and based upon profound and life-changing doctrine. But, it is important to keep in mind that Christ is not only the content of our faith but also the source of our life.
