The Doctor: Church History Is Bigger Than You

But if we look at the long history of the Christian Church, and pay attention to certain things that are to be seen in individuals, and in groups of churches, and perhaps in a whole country, at times, we shall be given an insight into what we have in this verse.  In other words, if you are in doubt about the meaning of such a verse as this, do not reduce it to something that may be true in your own experience and limit it to that; read the lives of the saints, read the story of certain unusual people who have adorned the Church of God and listen to what they have to say.  – D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Romans Vol. 7, pp. 298-299
