R.R. Reno, fast becoming one of my favorites, writes:
“[A]n observation by G.K. Chesterton: The Church ‘is the only thing that frees a man from the degrading slavery of being a child of his age.’ And elsewhere: ‘We do not want, as the newspapers say, a Church that will move with the world. We want a Church that will move the world.’
“But theological liberalism can’t resist servitude. One of its key tenets is that the modern age reveals something new about the human condition that requires the Church and doctrine to change in fundamental ways.”
