Thinking Biblically

Greg Wilber has an excellent post on how Augustine, St. Patrick, and others thought and spoke about the world in terms of the Bible:

"These men knew Scripture. These men breathed Scripture. These men thought in patterns and in syntax derived from the Word of God. As such, the very manner and structure of their thoughts reflected the thoughts of God. The modern method is to add on a Biblical text that was found through a concordance which matches up what we were trying to say as a means of sanctifying the content. What a difference to have the thoughts themselves directed by the flow of words that came from the very mouth and mind of God!"

Enough time wasted on the internet! Time to read my Bible.
