Mike Yaconelli wrote in his book ‘Dangerous Wonder’:
The most critical issue facing Christians is not abortion, pornography, the disintegration of the family, moral absolutes, MTV, drugs, racism, sexuality or school prayer. The critcal issue today is dullness. We have lost our astonishment. The Good News is no longer good news, it is ok news. Christianity is not longer life changing, it is life enhancing. Jesus doesn’t change people in to wild-eyed radicals anymore, He changes them into ‘nice people’.
I think he’s right. I often wonder what has happened to amazement at God and at the world. How did we ever get to a place where Jesus was tame, safe and predictable?
