Greatest Obstacles to the Gospel

Ken Myers, in July/Aug Moody Monthly, p. 8

False ideas are the greatest obstacles to the gospel. We may preach with all the fervor of a reformer and yet succeed only in winning a straggler here and there, if we permit the whole collective thought of the nation or of the world to be controlled by ideas which, by the resistless force of logic, prevent Christianity from being regarded as anything more than a harmless delusion. - J. Gresham Machen

The Culture War is primarily over who influences the definition of reality. Defining the distinctiveness of our world-view is at stake, not just political power.
