Tozer: Evangelicals are too Worldly

I just spotted this quote online, and do not know its date. It is at least a few decades old — but, sadly, very timely.

“Evangelical Christianity is now tragically below the New Testament standard. Worldliness is an accepted part of our way of life. Our religious mood is social instead of spiritual. We have lost the art of worship. We are not producing saints. Our models are successful business men, celebrated athletes and theatrical personalities. We carry on our religious activities after the methods of the modern advertiser. Our literature is shallow and our hymnody borders on sacrilege. And scarcely anyone appears to care.”
-A.W. Tozer

May it spur us to prayer, and to pursue a greater personal zeal for holiness.
