Trueblood: democracy

Monday, July 4, 2016
    What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin...
    —Romans 3:9 (ESV)
    Democracy is necessitated by the fact that all men are sinners; it is made possible by the fact that we know it.
    ... Elton Trueblood (1900-1994), Foundations for Reconstruction, New York: Harper & Brothers, 1946, p. 105 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 3:9-18,23; Ps. 143:2; Matt. 1:21; Rom. 5:12; Gal. 2:16; 3:22; 1 John 1:10
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, never allow us to forget our sinfulness.
