Notable Quotable: Machen on Christianity and Liberalism
VFT

Machen once observed, "Here is found the most fundamental difference between liberalism and Christianity—liberalism is altogether in the imperative mood, while Christianity begins with a triumphant indicative; liberalism appeals to man’s will, while Christianity announces first, a gracious act of God" (from Christianity and Liberalism, 47).  The simple truth is either we save ourselves or God saves us.
