Moralism

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 6:38 am

“In Christian teaching, any and all challenges must be placed within the context of announcing what God has done or promises to do. It’s the very opposite of self-help teaching. I admit it’s easy to jump straight to the “should dos,”“to dos,” and “how tos” when preaching or teaching. It seems to meet the listeners where they are. It has the “appearance of wisdom” (Col. 2:23). It feels practical, applicable, and responsible. Yet, in the process, evangelical churches and books become filled with moralism. In my experience, many evangelical churches proclaim the gospel as the path of salvation, but then quickly switch to moralism and self-help as the way of sanctification.”

From Reverberations by Jonathan Leeman
