“Maybe the greatest threat to the Church is not heresy, not dissent, not secularism, not even moral relativism, but this sanitized, feel-good, boutique, therapeutic spirituality, that makes no demands, calls for no sacrifice, asks for no conversion, entails no battle against sin, but only soothes and affirms.”
That sort of lazy Christianity is, and always has been, enormously popular. Who WOULDN'T like a faith that tells you that you are just fine the way you are and which doesn't require anything of you?
True Christianity isn't that way. It makes inconvenient demands, but to understand those demands, we must reclaim language we have tossed on the scrapheap of superstition.
