Human Memory is Fallen and Limited

“The sad reality is that human memory is short, selective, and self-serving. Moreover, each new generation begins with a slightly different baseline. Since all its members need conversion, the church is never more than a generation or two from extinction. If we forget this simple point, it becomes all too easy to rest on our laurels when we are comfortable, and somehow lose sight of our mission, not to say our Maker and Redeemer.”

D. A. Carson, For the Love of God, vol. 1, October 15.
