Started reading Albert Mohler’s book Culture Shift and it’s typical Mohler: brilliant, concise and thought-provoking.
While there has been plenty of quotable content so far, his description of “spirituality” is noteworthy, not to mention spot-on.
While Mohler’s take on spirituality might be better suited for the Quotable tab above, it was too good a quote to bury it up there.
So without further ado, here are Dr. Mohler’s words on spirituality:
Spirituality is what is left when authentic Christianity is evacuated from the public square. It is the refuge of the faithless seeking the trappings of faith without the demands of revealed truth.
Spirituality affirms us in our self-centeredness and soothingly tells us that all is well. Authentic faith in Christ calls us out of ourselves, points us to the Cross, and summons us to follow Christ.
