Quotable quote (8): Seeker Sensitivity?

Since these were Paul's objectives, his means were chosen appropriately. To glorify God he used the means given by God. To lead people to faith in the Christ of the Gospel, he made the Gospel itself his instrument. When people didn't like it — as often happened — he did not mold his message according to their consumer tastes. Instead, he warned them of the judgment awaiting those who reject God's Gospel (see Act 13:40)
