He lived in a different century and his theology was skewed, but he was right on about this truth.
There is a toleration which is treachery. There is a peace which issues in paralysis. There are hours when the Church must say NO to those who should ask communion with her, in the doing of her work, upon the basis of compromise. Such standing aloof may produce ostracism and persecution; but it will maintain power and influence … The reason why men do not look to the Church today is that she has destroyed her own influence by compromise. –G. Campbell Morgan
Appeasement which sacrifices principles or lowers the bar is not only a political problem, but a keen spiritual crisis today.
