unbelieving believers


We are surrounded by unconverted people who think they do believe in Jesus. Drunks on the street say they believe. Unmarried couples sleeping together say they believe. Elderly people who haven’t sought worship or fellowship for forty years say they believe. All kinds of lukewarm, world-loving, church attenders say they believe. The world abounds with millions of unconverted people who say they believe.

Desiring God, John Piper, quoted in:
Loving God with All You’ve Got
, p. 199, Sunder Krishnan
