"Fine-Sounding Arguments" - How Wrongly "Engaging the Culture" Adjusts the Gospel (Colossians 1-3)

"Paul's passion was to present to Christ a pure bride. That's what got him up every morning. This is your goal as a pastor: to push people up into Christ" (1:28-29).

"We are gospel men. That is our purpose."

"Paul engaged culture by engaging the church, because God's people are the only ones who can think in the categories of 'consistent with the gospel' and 'inconsistent with the gospel.'"

"Jesus is the sovereign Lord of all creation. We need no new philosophy. Christ is all and in all" (2:9-10).

"The church is multi-ethnic, but mono-cultural."

"Engaging the culture with an earthly mind will lead to earthly living; the only way to be any earthly good is to be increasingly heavenly-minded" (3:1-11).
