There is a content and a mission to the church that the Bible gives us that is transcultural, and transhistorical. And though we can learn certain techniques of how to organize, and how to reach out to people, we must never compromise the mission and character of the church to preach the gospel, the good news of Christ's death for sinners.

MR: Dr. Sproul, do you think that in some ways Evangelicals are carried along like the general culture with an obsession of power rather than a concern for preaching Christ crucified?
Sproul: Yes, I think it is just another dimension where the Evangelical church is playing catch-up with the world and trying desperately to address the culture with some degree of relevance, but as has been the case almost consistently in this century, we're following rather than leading.
