Principles and Practices - October 7

The Need Of Grace

Mere natural morality, uninspired by religious motives, might stand the wear and tear of everyday life for a short petiod, but it is bound sooner or later to break down catastrophic­ally. We cannot avoid sin, nor can we advance in virtue without keeping ever in view a super­natural vision.
