This Quote of the Day comes from David Alan Black’s latest, The Jesus Paradigm:
The religion of our age is utopian pragmatism, and with it the whole social structure of America is tumbling down, dethroning its God and undermining all its certainties. I have no doubt that had C.S. Lewis lived long enough he would have devoted another Screwtape Letter to the devilish ways the American church has deceived itself into thinking it is following the blueprint of Scripture. (p. 29)
