As J. Greshem Machen wrote years ago, “Liberalism is another religion.” (Christianity and Liberalism, 1923) It is not Christianity at all.
Here is the forward and introduction to this great book: with a new forward by Carl Trueman. (2009)
Freedom of thought in the middle ages was combated by the Inquisition, but the modern method is far more effective. Place the lives of children in their formative years, despite the convictions of their parents, under the intimate control of experts appointed by the state, force them then to attend schools where the higher aspirations of humanity are crushed out, and where the mind is filled with the materialism of the day, and it is difficult to see how even the remnants of liberty can subsist. (Machen, Christianity and Liberalism, Introduction, page 12)
“As Machen himself set up the contrast: It is no wonder, then, that liberalism is totally different from Christianity, for the foundation is different. Christianity is founded upon the Bible. It bases upon the Bible both its thinking and its life. Liberalism on the other hand is founded upon the shifting emotions of sinful men.” Carl R. Trueman, xv
