Today's Maxwell Quote

From The Smallest Part (1973), 32:
Verity in theology makes for accuracy in action, while doubt and disbelief lead to disjunctive action. Secularism has even drawn some churches behind it with the result noted by Samuel Callan, in which: ". . . the church will wed herself to the culture of the day and be a widow within each succeeding age. . . ."

Where men reject absolute truths and legitimate authority, there are subsequently no criteria for decisions, no direction, and no brakes, while an ever-present sense of hurrying moves such individuals forward to "catch the fashionable insanity." All too often we see a "perversion . . . become a convention."
