Quotes to Consider:

John Calvin on Philippians 3:15: "Let us in the mean time learn also from this passage, that we must bear for a time with ignorance in our weak brethren, and forgive them, if it is not given them immediately to be altogether of one mind with us. Paul felt assured as to his doctrine, and yet he allows those who could not as yet receive it time to make progress, and he does not cease on that account to regard them as brethren, only he cautions them against flattering themselves in their ignorance."

Thomas Watson: To "those that fear God ... the Day of Judgment will be a Jubilee, a blessed comfortable day to them" (Religion our True Interest, p. 39).
