"People do not-- will not-- drift towards holiness.
Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not
obedience to scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord.
we drift towards compromise and call it tolerance
we drift towards disobedience and call it freedom
we drift towards superstition and call it faith
we cherish the indiscipline of lost self control and call it relaxation
we slouch towards prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking that we have escaped legalism.
We slide towards godlessness-- and convince ourselves that we have been liberated."
D.A. Carson -For the Love of God
