J. Gresham Machen (1881-1937): The triumphant indicative

“Here is found the most fundamental difference between liberalism and Christianity – liberalism is altogether in the imperative mood, while Christianity begins with a triumphant indicative; liberalism appeals to man’s will, while Christianity announces, first, a gracious act of God.”

– J. Gresham Machen (1881-1937), Christianity and Liberalism, p. 39
