Living off borrowed capital

The fatal habit of considering Christian morals as distinct from Christian doctrines insensibly gained strength. Thus the peculiar doctrines of Christianity went more and more out of sight and as might naturally have been expected, the moral system itself began to whither and decay, being robbed of that which should have supplied it with life and nutriment.
William Wilberforce
