Worth more than it's weight.... Sep 7, 2006
Warfield holds nothing back in his caution, instruction, and encouragement to those who seek to seek Christ in the context of seminary education. That being said, his speech [transcribed in this text] is a strong motivation to all of us who seek to know the God of Scripture. Warfield doesn't seek to run to the extreme of the pragmatist, nor does he seek to uphold the view of the separatist. What he communicates is a balanced view that in order to show ourselves as approved workman, we must engage God with our minds, our hearts, our hands, and out spirits.
Personally, he's set upon me to question why my heart would grow cold in my seeking of Christ. Further, the challenge is there to devote myself to what might be called the "rigors" of the religious life and to seek the joy of the privilege it is to know and be known by God. This is an obviously short text, but it is well worth beyond its weight on the shelf of your library.
How To Get Through Seminary With Your Faith Intact Apr 28, 2000
Warfield will not let the seminary student be lulled into a false sense of piety because of the topic of one's study. It is not enough to study God. One must be profoundly affected by the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ on a daily basis, or one's studies will have introduced a dangerous dichotomy into one's life. Warfield will not allow a dichotomy between doctrine and life to go unchallenged. This is devotional reading of the richest kind. You will come away convicted and better equipped to see the Lord as the center of your studies, rather than becoming the sterotypical castaway. Read it and then live it !
