Universalist Quote of the Day #28

“The wisdom and goodness of God, according to scripture and reason, are universal.  The ignorance of mortals concerning them, on the one hand, makes them no less, and their knowledge, on the other makes them no greater. We must duly regard, however, the evident fact, that the enjoyment of reasonable beings, is extended by the extension of knowledge, which renders acquirements in science and divinity an object of the first magnitude.”

–Hosea Ballou, A Series of Letters in Defence of Divine Revelation.  Boston, 1820: 43.
