What Is the Modern "Church" Winning People To?
Any objection to the carryings on of our present gold-calf Christianity is met with the triumphant reply, “but we are winning them!” And winning them to what? To true discipleship? To cross-carrying? To self-denial? To separation from the world? To crucifixion of the flesh? To holy living? To nobility of character? To a despising of the world’s treasures? To hard self-discipline? To love for God? To total commitment to Christ? Of course the answer to all these questions is no.
