Have we gone blind? What can we expect from our across-the-board commitment to the middle ground? Don’t we realize that our recent converts to Christianity will become just like us? Will it be a comfort to see them just as lazy regarding their personal devotion to Jesus as we are?
And don’t we realize what our slack standards are costing us in our witness to the world?
In Revival Praying, author Leonard Ravenhill writes,
This present day is like an arena whose terraces are filled with the militant godless, the brilliant and belligerent skeptics, plus the blank-face heathen millions, all looking into the empty ring to see what the Church of the living God can do. How I burn at this point! What are we Christians doing? To use a very tattered phrase, are we just “playing church”?
