Has Your Gospel Reduced to Christian Causes?

“Whenever you believe that the evil outside you is greater than the evil inside you, a heartfelt pursuit of Christ will be replaced by a zealous fighting of the “evil” around you.  A celebration of the grace that rescues you from your own sin will be replaced by the crusade to the rescue the church from the ills of the surrounding culture.  Christian maturity becomes defined as a willingness to defend right from the wrong.  The gospel is reduced to participation in Christian causes.”

— Tim Lane and Paul David Tripp, How People Change, p. 10.
