Significance of the Spirit in the Life of Jesus Pt.1
ISF lecture; Trinity; God; Jesus
Let me draw some dots together with this particular theme and a quote from J.B. Phillips book, who's a British clergyman, Bible scholar. Your God is too small and it's a point. He's writing it, making a general statement about people in Britain, Christians in general. But it has some implications for evangelicals, too. The idea is that many people retain their childhood view of God into adulthood. Here's his quote. The trouble with many people today is that they have not found a God big enough for modern needs, while their experience of life has grown in a score of directions and their mental horizons have been expanded to the point of bewilderment by world events and by scientific discoveries, their ideas of God have remained largely static is obviously impossible for an adult to worship the same conception of God that he or she had as a child a Sunday school age, unless he is prepared to deny his own experience of life
