"The modern church is slave to the spirit of the times. If we really had our druthers, we wouldn’t want worship to be too terribly demanding, would we? We wouldn’t want doctrines that actually challenge our pet notions. We really only want music that we’re comfortable with. We really only want preaching that reassures us and reinforces our peculiar preferences and affords us our sense of serenity and all in record time.
We want quick things, cheap grace, inspirational platitudes, bumper-sticker theology, easy faith; we want Christianity Light; we want the nice news, not the good news."
