Wrong Turn

In the last 300 years Christianity has steadily lost ground as a spiritual force in Western culture. The secularization inherent in a highly developed Western philosophy has emasculated a Christianity that had already at crucial points made its peace with that very philosophy. Christianity has not escaped the bitter fruits of its early compromise with Greek thought — these fruits have now rendered it weak and effete in the face of secularism.
