“Folks in our church have got to stop taking cues from the culture and instead be led by the Spirit. And here’s what I mean: It’s like the culture continues to move the end zone, continues to move the goalposts, continues to dictate and care. And so many people derive their identity and their goodness based on how much they care about particular issue when, in fact, our identity is hidden in the person and work of Christ and what he’s done on our behalf. All our activism must flow from that. If our activism is issue-driven, then we’ll fall into the same camp, where we will only chase after the issues, but not after the hearts of people.” — Jason Cook
