Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

This is clear from the nature of mysteries, for they are beyond reason, beyond the mind, beyond all comprehension. They are set forth in the light of grace, not in the light of nature. They are taught in the school of the Holy Spirit, not in the school of the wise men of this age. They proceed from the spring of God's infinite wisdom, not from the little streams of human knowledge. - Johann Gerhard, *On the Nature of God and On the Trinity* p. 296
