Quotes from Darrell Guder

I’ve been reading Guder’s “The Continuing Conversion of the Church.”  Here are a couple quotes,

“As the goal of the gospel has become ‘the pursuit of happiness,’ evangelistic preaching has often conceded to the context and presented the gospel as the way to attain happiness, self-fulfillment, self-realization, and even prosperity.”

“Our greatest priority, particularly in our theologies of salvation, should be to rejoin the benefits of salvation with the responsibilities and call to the saved to enter into God’s mission in the world.”
