Dangerously different


The truth is that the greatest enemy of the Western church is not the state or any ideology such as atheism, but the world and the spirit of the age.

Anything less than a full-blooded
expression of the Christian faith
has no chance of standing firm
against the assaults and seductions
of the advanced modern world.

So when the church becomes worldly, she betrays her Lord, and she also fails to live up to her calling to be dangerously different and thus to provide deliverance from the world by a power that is not of the world.
