Religion cloaks sin in pretext. Calls it Righteous.

“What worldly souls do crudely and openly, peolpe who want to live for God often do more subtly, with the help of some pretext, which, serving them as a screen, stops them from seeing the ugliness of their behavior.” -Francois de Salignac

It’s funny how far we think society has come. This quote was from the mid-19th Century France, and was translated to English later. I came across Christian Perfection in an old church library and, interestingly, it is still a great commentary on the state of the church and people of faith in 21st-Century America.

Do you agree or disagree? Where do you see this played out?
