And I Quote… January 2

And-I-QuoteA Christian faith that tries to adapt itself to this culture in order to win a “hearing” is a Christian faith that will be left with nothing to say. The ally of faith is not culture but creation, not the ethos and trends of modernity, but the stubbornly present imago Dei. For it is the image of God that persists in raising the questions that must be answered, even as it is modernity, in union with our fallen proclivities, that works to obscure these questions.
