The Savages Are Stirring Again

This week I am attending a conference in California. One of the speakers presented the following quote from Carl Henry:

Our generation is lost to the truth of God, to the reality of divine
revelation, to the content of God’s will, to the power of His redemption, and to
the authority of His Word. For this loss it is paying dearly in a swift relapse
to paganism. The savages are stirring again; you can hear them rumbling and
rustling in the tempo of our times.
Cf. Carl F. H. Henry, Twilight of a Great Civilization: The drift
toward neo-paganism

Westchester: Crossway, 1988, p. 15

Note the copyright date: 1988! Twenty years ago, Henry recognized where our culture was headed.
