Structurally Identical

“In this view [Roman Catholicism], the grace of God is contained in a vast reservoir, and there are seven gold-plated spigots from which that grace is dispensed, and these spigots are manned by ordained priests. Not to be fair, this is structurally identical to how much of pop evangelicalism operates—only they dispense the grace through undecorated tin buckets and green garden hoses—meaning altar calls, signing cards, throwing pine cones in the fire at youth camp, re-dedications, and all the rest of it. The semi-Pelagianism of Rome is more than matched by the semi-Pelagianism of a Billy Graham crusade.”

Chestertonian Calvinism, p. 78
