    But they all felt a certain truth—the truth that the moment you love anything the world becomes your foe. That means that I see no reason in this book to think Spencer believes in the gospel as the NT defines gospel grace as the gift of God through Christ by faith. However, he believes that God's grace is something we have to opt-out of, not opt-in as Christianity has taught. Listen to your critics.

    Chapter I: "Introductory Remarks on the Importance of Orthodoxy"[ edit ] The word ' heresy ' not only means no longer being wrong; it practically means being clear-headed and courageous. Quotes[ edit ] There are some people, nevertheless — and I am one of them — who think that the most practical and important thing about a man is still his view of the universe. I don't know that I'd call it my guide to eternity. I can imagine his writing a good novel about it. Anyhow, I've just begun reading the book, so I'll post a real review of it here in a week or two once I'm all the way through.

    The absence from modern life of both the higher and lower forms of faith is largely due to a divorce from nature and the trees and clouds. If a man is genuinely superior to his fellows the first thing that he believes in is the equality of man. But he is something more important than a reality; he is a practical ideal. It is the English who are odd because they do not see the fairies.

We do not desire that the full force of that study should be put into an ordinary man. My first reading was non-stop over two cups of coffee, the second over three days with numerous pauses.

Let no man deceive himself; if by vulgarity we mean coarseness of speech, rowdiness of behaviour, gossip, horseplay, and some heavy drinking, vulgarity there always was wherever there was joy, wherever there was faith in the gods.

How can it have come about that a man as intelligent as Mr. If you know what you believe, and why; if you're satisified with that kind of faith; then this is not the book for you.

McCabe really wishes to know what sort of guarantee of reality and solidity is afforded by the mere act of what is called talking seriously, let him spend a happy Sunday in going the round of the pulpits.

Its exaggeration is based on an exuberant and honest admiration; its honest admiration is based upon something which is in some degree, at any rate, really there. McCabe is sincere and not funny.

Within each section, the first chapter opens up the issue under scrutiny; the second chapter takes it apart; and the third attempts to put things back together from a fresh perspective. I had a discussion several months ago with two evangelical, white, Republican friends who had never seen Jesus as a champion for social justice before.
