Quotable

17 Jan

“If we are living in an age of relativism and narcissism, then what are the implications for preaching?  Obviously, Bible teaching will be out of favor.  Sinners generally do not like to have their selfishness exposed; but that is one of the primary purposes of preaching the Bible.  In a post-Christian culture, the last thing people want to hear is the truth about their self-centeredness.  What preaching there is, therefore, tends to be therapeutic rather than prophetic.  It aims to make people feel better about who they are rather than to challenge them to become, by God’s grace, what they are not.”
-Philip Graham Ryken, City on a Hill (2003)
