By D. A. Carson

People do not drift toward holiness.  Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer,

obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord.  We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance;  we drift

toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith.  We cherish the indiscipline

of lost 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 we have been liberated.
