“Modern religious liberalism has really only one dogma and consequently knows just one heresy… From this viewpoint a person is heretical to the extent that he may believe that there is absolute religious truth. – John Horsch

Social Improvement Instead of Personal Salvation
“…Modernism overlooks the fact that personal salvation is for the individual a far more important matter than the privilege to live in a socially improved society. It is more important to have the victory of the spirit through a personal relationship to God than to have one’s social and political and economic desires satisfied.
“And the thought that the world may be regenerated through human instrumentality, or in other words, that conditions on earth may be improved to such extent that men are no longer born in sin and do no longer need personal salvation through Jesus Christ — this thought is utterly fallacious. If individual reformation does not change the heart of the one who reforms, neither will improvement of social conditions break the organized power of evil that is manifest in the world.
