Wilson: Sadly Mistaken

“We are sadly mistaken and think that fussiness is holiness. We think that the Lord’s Day is for fasting when it is a feast. We think that psalms were given to mortify the flesh when they were in fact given for the overflow of the spirit. We think that predestination is a vast and impersonal machine grinding our bones to flour, when it’s nothing other than a loving Father involved in everything we say and do. In our poverty-stricken doctrine, our salvation was God’s little afterthought, and besides, we were not that bad to begin with, and so we have been forgiven little, and have received little. Not surprisingly we love little and laugh even less.”

– Douglas Wilson, Angels in the Architecture (p. 77)
