Sunday Quote: J. Gresham Machen on False Ideas

“False ideas are the greatest obstacles to the reception of the gospel. We may preach with all the fervor of a reformer and yet succeed only in winning a straggler here and there, if we permit the whole collective thought of the nation to be controlled by ideas […] which prevent Christianity from being regarded as anything more than a harmless delusion.”

J. Gresham Machen, “Christianity and Culture,” Princeton Theological Review 11 (1913): 7.
