"Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) took great pains to create and project a powerful image of himself beyond the churches and towns where he wrote and taught in Roman north Africa. He succeeded in this self-presentation beyond his wildest dreams."
So I'm assuming St Augustine's quote is from the era above...1500 years *before* TOE was introduced. Not sure why you posted it...??
--Not sure why you posted it...?? --
Because the meaning still applies today as it did before. Ignorant Christian rantings make all Christians look bad.
