Henry on the coming barbarians


“We are so steeped in the antichrist philosophy—namely, that success consists in embracing not the values of the Sermon on the Mount but an infinity of material things, of sex and status—that we little sense how much of what passes for practical Christianity is really an apostate compromise with the spirit of the age.

“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.” (Carl F. H. Henry, TWILIGHT OF A GREAT CIVILIZATION: The Drift Toward Neo-Paganism, Crossway Books, Westchester, IL, 1988, p15)

Henry wrote this back in 1988. Looking at the world around us, I believe Henry’s savages are upon us! When we look at how people are fighting for their rights to murder, be depraved and to lead others—even children—into complete hedonistic immorality, I believe the savages are among us!


Hold fast to the Bible.
To the influence of this Book we are indebted for all the progress
made in true civilization and to this we must look as our guide in the future.
Ulysses S. Grant
