foresight on contextual theology from some 180 years ago

'If, therefore, a man claims to know and speak of God and carries you backward to phraseology of some old mouldered nation in another country, in another world, believe him not.'

Ralph Waldo Emerson, 'Self-Reliance' 

(RW Emerson, 1803-1882; Harvard Divinity School alumnus, 1825)
