Charles Hodge on Piety

By | July 15, 2012

“Wherever you find vital piety – that is penitence and a devotional spirit – there you find the doctrines of the fall, of depravity, of regeneration, of atonement, and of the deity of Jesus Christ. I neither saw nor heard of a single individual who exhibited a spirit of piety who rejected any one of these doctrines. Holiness is essential to the correct knowledge of divine things and the great security from error.”
-Charles Hodge, “Charles Hodge The Pride of Princeton,” by W. Andrew Hoffecker, pages 122-23.
