Finished volume II of Cottrell’s Trilogy on God and started Vol. III.
Loved it! Highly recommend it, for he exalts Christ and provokes the reader to both search the scriptures and think!
Again, there are fundamental disagreements in our understandings! But, as the Psalmist says, “…I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy commandments…”. Brother Cottrell, IMHO, is in that category and this olde bird has no intent to throw stones!
In a previous post I made reference to “…thinking outside the box…” and suggested such is an intellectual impossibility. All thinking occurs within a “box”.
So, for me, my objective has been to attempt to “think inside” bro. Cottrell’s “box”. This has been my driving motivation to read his Trilogy on God, and hopefully, to conclude with his commentary on Romans.
One of the things I look forward to in heaven is the chance to interact with brother Cottrell and to ask him, “…how do you insinuate the concept of “relative independence”?
Maybe, when he explains it, my response will be, “…Oh, why couldn’t I see that back then?...”
Or, maybe, my response will be, “…What? You can’t be serious?..,”
In any case, we both agree there will be continued learning on the “…other side…”!
Ain’t God awesome?!!!
