Reformed theology and coldness of heart

Regarding coldness of heart and harshness with others:

‘The problem is not Reformed theology per se. Inherent within that theology is a humbling and melting and softening and beautifying power.

If we stop with the intellectual, if we allow our theology to remain cerebral and conceptual only, then this coldness, hardness, harshness and ruthlessness will enter in.’
