A Thirst for Imitation

Sharing Options

“When we hold modern evangelicalism and liberalism side by side, we see that both have a thirst for imitation. The liberals have sought to imitate high culture, while evangelicals have pursued popular culture. The liberals wanted to imitate Philistine violin concertos and textual criticism, while modern evangelicals wanted to ape Philistine stress therapy. But the fact of adultery is not altered simply because a man pursues a Susie instead of Constance.”
