Nothing New Under the Sun….

In reading David Lachman’s The Marrow Controversy, I came across this quote from eighteenth century Scottish pastor, James Hog. 

“…most men are so far under the Sway of their Lusts that they settle upon such Notions and Sets of Religion, both as to Doctrine and Practice, which they find most agreeable to their Lusts and to their secular interests.   Such is the case with … the New Divinity which makes the chief end of man to be the Happiness of Man and not the glory of God.” ( David Lachman, The Marrow Controversy, 127)

Indeed there is nothing new under the sun.
