The Book of Common Prayer Greatness of past and spiritually dead modernity

Look to The Book of Common Prayer (first written 1549)
"Almighty and most merciful Father, We have erred and strayed from Thy Ways like lost sheep, We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts, We have offended against Thy Holy Laws, We have left undone those things which we ought to have done, And we have done those things which we ought not to have done, And there is no health in us: But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us miserable offenders."

How utterly far removed and detached from this pure-hearted confession is the modern so-called Christian (and the entire Christian church), who has not even a vestigial reminiscent fear of God remaining in his heart.

From Robert Alan Balaicius' book Does God Repent
