THE PRACTICAL VALUES OF THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST'S PERSON
It Demonstrates That There is no Unbridgeable Antagonism Between God and Human Nature
- In Christ both the Divine and Human dwelt together in perfect harmony
- The unbridgeable antagonism is between God and sinful human nature
The Doctrine of Christ's Person Provides an Endless Field for Reverent Study and Contemplation
The mystery and the problem have fascinated the greatest Christian minds, and we venture to suggest, that it will always be so. We shall make progress in our knowledge of His Blessed Person, but, we shall never reach the end of the mystery.
This Doctrine Teaches Intellectual Humility to the Christian Thinker
There are some matters that are beyond us. After we have searched to the limits of our finite understanding under the guidance of the Spirit of God, we must at last fall upon our faces before the mystery of God in Christ and confess humbly that we cannot explain Him. But thank God, we can know Him, which is far better than mere explanation.
