“The modernist preacher affirms the deity of Jesus not because he thinks high of Jesus but because he thinks desperately low of God.”   (J. Gresham Machen, “The Issue in the Church,” in God Transcendent)

    How sad, to think ‘desperately low’ of God. What does anything mean, if He doesn’t? And of course, it’s Machen — how profoundly true.
