D.A. Carson

“People do not, will not, drift toward holiness.

Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, and obedience to Scripture, faith and delight in the Lord.

Instead, we drift toward compromise and call it ‘tolerance,’

toward disobedience and call it ‘freedom,’

toward superstition and call it ‘faith.’

We cherish the lost discipline of self-control and call it ‘relaxation.’

We slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism.

We slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves that we have been liberated.”
