David Wells on the Success of the Church

If the Church succeeds as a Church, if it is really true to itself, is never going to be a worldly success. Its gospel is stupid. Many, we know, arcalled but few are chosen. Much seed is sown, but only a little produces a rich harvest. And when Christ returns is hgoing to find faith on the face of the earth? Is it right, thenfor the Church to prostrate itself obsequiously before the world in this sorry quest to become a going and successful enterprise? Is it right to allow sinners, hostile in their naturboth to God and His law, to define how theChurch is going to do its business? I think not. –David Wells, in Bleeding of the Evangelical Church.
