“The Good War”

Kreeft, Peter

Christianity Today, December 17, 1990

p. 31

Isn’t sin “only” maladjustment or ignorance or bad education or inadequate ego and id and superego adjustment, or poor conditioning? “No. No one can ever show these things, prove these ‘onlys,’ any more than a dying cancer patient can explain her disease as ‘only’ cells; no more than a book is ‘only syllables.’ That’s not what it is, only what it’s made of, only its matter, not its form.”
