Worldliness Quote

Phillip Johnson, the PYROMANIAC, has the quote of the day; so far.

As a matter of fact, I know some hard-core fundamentalists who are the rankest kind of worldlings, because they imagine that holiness consists only in external and cultural things, and they have not cultivated a genuine love in their hearts for that which is spiritual.

Truly, the practice of legalism and fundamentalism does lend itself to a sense of moral superiority.  That leads to, or becomes, pride in ourselves.  BIG SIN, right there.  But it is So easy to fall into that sin.  We’re a mess; not at all worthy of God’s grace yet he has found us worthwhile for His grace.  What an awesome God.
