Lenten Quote, Day 4

From the earliest ages, Christians have sought ways to soften the offense of the cross. Most of the Christological heresies of the early church arose not so much from philosophical speculation as from the effort to avoid the madness of a crucified Savior. Yet, this is the madness we confess, and celebrate, during Lent. We are the people of a crucified God, and as we confess the cross we also confess that the weakness of God is stronger than men, His folly wiser than all human wisdom, His madness saner than the clean sanity of all sophisticates of every age. –Peter Leithart
