The Knowledge of God

R C, Penryn, pseud.  [Richard Cope]




Biblical Authority, Dissection

    Quotes Heb. 4. 13 ('Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight, but all things are naked and open unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do'). Observes that St Paul the apostle, adopting 'a figure taken from the dissection of a body, the internal parts of which are, by this means, disclosed to the sight, [...] represents all the heart, its thoughts, its conceptions, its desires, as laid open to the view of God' (258–59).
