This Is Why I Find the Mystics Creepy


Zwinglius Redivivus

And find myself every day adhering instead to the sage insights of Emil Brunner in his Die Mystik und das Wort and why I find the aforementioned mystics as unappealing as Schleiermacher:

Today is Jesus’ birth day. I’ll be tweeting from the 14th-c. mystic Marguerite d’Oingt, who imagined Jesus giving birth on the cross.  “Oh, sweet and lovely Lord, how bitterly were you in labor for me all through your life!” “When you had to give birth, the labor was such that your holy sweat was like drops of blood which poured out of your body…”  Lisa Deam

Follow Lisa- she’s always tweeting the most unique things.
