Godlessness that believes in anything

Some quotes from a new post at a blog I am now reading every day.

C.K. Chesterton once said that the problem when people stop believing in God is not that they will believe in nothing, but that they will then believe in anything.

Without God, all truth claims don’t have any foundation beyond the subjective and pragmatic hopes of the individual. Truth becomes that which is expedient to the moment.

Essentially, we live in a Christian culture that will believe in anything and call it Christian. As an old professor of mine used to say, “Its something, but it is not Christian.”
