Unleashing Sin’s Worst Powers

Karl Marx 001

Karl Marx

“Utopianism can be maintained only by a kind of willful blindness to the reality of human sin.  But when we succumb to that blindness, we lose the capacity to deal with sin, and in the end, we actually compound its effects.  Therein lies the greatest paradox of all attempts to deny the Fall: In denying sin and evil, we actually unleash its worst powers.”

~ Charles Colson and Nancy Pearcey, How Now Shall We Live? (Tyndale, 1999), p. 183
