*Secular Christianity has never been alive and well in the Church for 2,000 years!

“How is it that, among the great and classic notes of the Church of a liberating Gospel as One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic, there is not the great modern note of Free? . . . “We hear impatient questions whether religion cannot go on without a Church. To which the answer is that religion might, but Christianity could not. Not only does Christianity need a Church negatively, for protection against the world, but the Gospel necessitates it positively, for the exercise of faith and growth of service. Christianity put into men a new power that compelled a Church by its racial nature. If Christ had not founded a Church, the thing He did found would not done so. He created the new life, the new Covenant which, by its nature, was bound to create the Church.” (The Church & The Sacraments, by P.T. Forsyth)
