on significance

Sometimes, a small thing can make a huge impact. Luther had never thought that his 95 theses would change the whole Western church. Neither did Augustine, whose incapability of Greek language (!) was perhaps significant in the development of Western theology (which primary theological language was Latin) in contrast to Eastern theology (Greek). What would happen if Augustine was good in Greek?

(this post is not to be used as an excuse for those who are studying Greek right now!)

    you knew it… but what’s the motive behind saying what you said? :D haha… you made me think: “does this make me like augustine more?” like paul, i delight in my weakness, 2 Cor. 2:10.
