Quote from Augustine

The full text of Augustine’s City of God is online at the Christian Classics Ethereal Library.

It includes the hideously timely text of Book XIX, Chapter 6, “The mistakes of human judgement, when the truth is hidden”.

This is old stuff, and yet we have not yet heard the various parties to the current abysmal debate in which everyone is rushing to self-justification and defense, step up to the plate and acknowledge that our behavior here demonstrates how wretched we are. Or pray to be delivered from it.
