“What worldly souls do crudely and openly, peolpe who want to live for God often do more subtly, with the help of some pretext, which, serving them as a screen, stops them from seeing the ugliness of their behavior.” -Francois de Salignac
It’s funny how far we think society has come. This quote was from the mid-19th Century France, and was translated to English later. I came across Christian Perfection in an old church library and, interestingly, it is still a great commentary on the state of the church and people of faith in 21st-Century America.
Do you agree or disagree? Where do you see this played out?
