Iain Murray Quote

untitled“No Christian deliberately gives away to the spirit of the world but we all may do so unwittingly and unconsciously. That this has happened on a large scale in the later-twentieth century is to be seen in the way in which the interests and priorities of the contemporary culture have come to be mirrored in the churches. The antipathy to authority and to discipline; the cry for entertainment by the visual image rather than by the words of scripture; the appeal of the spectacular; the rise of feminism; the readiness to identify power with numbers; the unwillingness to make “beliefs” a matter of controversy- all these features so evident in the world’s agenda are now also to be found in the Christian scene. Instead of churches revolutionizing the culture the reverse has happened. Churches have been converted to the world.” – Evangelicalism Divided Pages 255-256
