QUOTABLE - GOOD FRIDAY

The nineteenth century pressures towards disbelief, which have prompted new defensive theologies and re-alignments within the churches, have also removed the unworthy reasons for professing Christianity. For the first time since Constantine, Christianity is now no advantage in anyone's career, or the lack of it no drawback.

Stripped of all these supports, faith becomes once more what it should always have been - an act of faith.
