Chesterton vs. Theological Innovators

“The new theologians often say that the old creeds need re-statement, but though they say it, they do not mean it. They mean exactly the opposite. They do not mean that they should find new words to express the exact meaning of the old doctrines. They mean that we should say the old words, but agree that they mean something entirely different.”

G.K. Chesterton, Illustrated London News, July 3, 1920.
