Stewart: the greatest menace

Friday, August 19, 2022
    For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.
    —Ephesians 5:8-10 (NIV)
    The greatest drag on Christianity to-day, the most serious menace to the Church’s mission, is not the secularism without, it is the reduced Christianity within: the religious generalities and innocuous platitudes of a pallid, anaemic Christianity which is simply (in the language of arithmeticians) the “highest common factor” of half a dozen different religions.
    ... James S. Stewart (1896-1990), A Faith to Proclaim, New York: Scribner, 1953, p. 31 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 5:8-10; Matt. 5:13-16; Mark 4:21-22; Rom. 12:1; 13:11-12; Phil. 2:14-16; 1 John 1:5-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are awakening Your people.
