Timeless Quote

No one will doubt that Christians of today must state their Christian beliefs in terms of modern thought. Every age has a language of its own and can speak no other. Mischief only comes when instead of speaking Christian belief in terms of modern thought; an effort is made rather to state modern thought in terms of Christian belief.

B.B. Warfield wrote those words about 100 years ago. These words could have been written today about the postmodern shift that is infecting so much of evangelicalism. Watch this space for more on this topic.

I lifted this quote from an audio message by David Wells on the Emergent Church given at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Thanks to Justin Taylor at Reformation21 for the link.
