Quotable

9 Nov

From P.T. Forsyth, at the turn of the 20th Century:

There are few dangers threatening the religious future more serious than the slow shallowing of the religious mind…Our safety is in the deep.  The lazy cry for simplicity is a great danger.  It indicates a frame of mind which is only appalled at the great things of God, and a senility of faith which fears that which is high.  Men complain that they are jaded and cannot rise to such matters.  That may mean that the matters of the world absorb all the energies of the great side of the soul, that Divine things are no more than a comfort.  And, if so, it means much for the future of religion, and much which is ominous.  And the poverty of our worship amid its very refinements, its lack of solemnity…is the fatal index of the peril.
