Quotable

20 Jun

“Enlightenment philosopher Immanuel Kant related that the older he grew the more convinced he was of ‘the starry heavens above and the moral law within.’  That’s why ‘pure religion’ (morality) is universal and useful, while ‘ecclesiastical faiths’ are superstitious and divisive.  Treat religion as private therapy to improve our lives and make us better people and it has its important place; treat it as public truth–Good News to the whole world–and it provokes tremendous offense.  Moral and spiritual enlightenment is one thing; redemption by a one-sided divine rescue operation is another.”
-Michael Horton, Christless Christianity (p. 127)
