Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones on Word and Spirit

"These two; "the Holy Spirit"; "the Word of God". We must never seperate them and if we ever do we shall go astray. Some people put their emphasis only on the word. These are the intellectuals. "Ah" they say, "nothing matters but the ties on theology and doctrine". As a rsult they may become proud of their own great knowledge. They may get the admiration of others who join in with them, but this is nothing but a little mutual admiration society. Nobody is converted, nobody is convicted. Heads packed with knowledge and understanding - useless! "Word only" you see".

Dr Lloyd-Jones - "Authentic Christianity - Volume 2 (Acts 4-5)" - Banner of Truth Trust, Edinburgh (2001) - (p84).
