Boy Who Only Loves the Good

“In 1924 Dr. J. Gresham Machen said, ‘The worst sin today is to say that you agree with the Christian faith and believe in the Bible, but then make common cause with those who deny the basic facts of Christianity. Never was it more obviously true that he that is not with Christ is against Him. Dr. Arnold of Rugby used to say that he never could be sure of a boy who only loved the good. Until that boy also began to hate evil he never felt that he was safe. Abraham Lincoln said, ‘To sin by silence when they should speak in protest, makes cowards of men.’”
