Daily Quotation

Christianity was preached by the [Catholic] Church before the New Testament was written--that is simply a [sic] historical fact.  It is also a fact that the apostles wrote the New Testament and the Church canonized it, deciding which books were divinely inspired.  I knew, from logic and common sense, that a cause can never be less than its effect.  You can't give what you don't have.  If the Church has no divine inspiration and no infallibility, no divine authority, then neither can the New Testament.  Protestantism logically entails Modernism.  I had to be either a Catholic or a Modernist.  That decided it; that was like saying I had to be a patriot or a traitor.
