History Repeats Itself

I came across another quote from D. G. Hart’s essay about J. Gresham Machen that made me think that history is repeating itself in 2011:

Not only did Machen combat liberalism, he also defended the value and importance of such militancy. When Machen wrote that liberalism was un-Christian he did so within the context of a church, the PCUSA, which functioned very much like a [sic] old boys’ club where accusations of infidelity were not only in bad taste but also constituted a breach of the ninth commandment.” (Always Reformed: Essays in Honor of W. Robert Godfrey, pages 40-41)
