Conceptions of Christ

I would very earnestly ask you to check your conception of Christ,
the image of Him which as a Christian you hold in your mind, with
the actual revealed Person who can be seen and studied in action in
the pages of the Gospels. It may be of some value to hold in our
minds a bundle of assorted ideals to influence and control our
conduct. But surely we need to be very careful before we give that
“bundle” the name of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
– J. B. Phillips (1906-1982), “When God was Man”
