Our Fundamental Loyalty

Our business is to present the Christian faith clothed in modern terms, not to propagate modern thought clothed in Christian terms.

Our business is to interpret and criticize modern thought by the gospel, not vice versa.

Confusion here is fatal.
--J. I. Packer, "Fundamentalism" and the Word of God (Eerdmans, 1958), 136
