Quote of the Day #94 - Augustine


This is a quote from Henry Bettenson's translation (1972) of Augustine's book City of God. Augustine lived in a time when Romans were blaming Christianity for the disasters coming upon the empire. Although Augustine wrote this in the early 5th century, this quote is quite applicable today:
For why is it that you put the blame on this Christian era, when things go wrong? Is it not because you are anxious to enjoy your vices without interference, and to wallow in your corruption, untroubled and unrebuked?
~Augustine (City of God (Penguin Classics), 1984, Book I, Chapter 30)
