God & Activism

By insisting specially on the immanence of God we get introspection, self-isolation…social indifference.

By insisting specially on the transcendence of God we get wonder, curiosity, moral and political adventure, righteous
indignation.

Insisting that God is inside man, man is always inside himself.

By insisting that God transcends man, man has transcended himself.

- G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
