Harry Platinga Quotes

One Quote by: Harry Platinga of Christian Classics Ethereal Library director.

As I was growing up, my church experience seemed somewhat heady to me–concerned more about correct belief than about actually loving God. Whether or not that was a correct perception, I wanted more. I wanted not just to know about God, I wanted to know God ... Christian mysticism addresses that longing of the heart. ... Webster defines mysticism as ‘the doctrine that it is possible to achieve communion with God through contemplation and love WITHOUT THE MEDIUM OF HUMAN REASON.’ That definition captures what I have in mind by the term.
