Quotes from the Cottage

"The fatal habit of considering Christian morals as distinct from Christian doctrines insensibly gained strength. Thus the peculiar doctrines of Christianity went more and more out of sight, and as might naturally have been expected, the moral system itself also began to wither and decay, being robbed of that which should have supplied it with life and nutriment."
--William Wilberforce

I love William Wilberforce - have you seen the movie "Amazing Grace"? Of course, they took quite a few liberties, but it was very good nonetheless.

Yes, I have seen "Amazing Grace" and did enjoy it despite the liberties taken. I recently read the short biography written about William Wilberforce by John Piper and really enjoyed that too.
