It has so crept into our church, our evangelism, and our missiology that you barely can call what we are doing ‘Christian’ anymore.Psychology, anthropology, and sociology have become primary influences in the churches….I have very little use at all for the “seeker-sensitive” church growth philosophies.

And what do we have to do with all these modern day social sciences that were actually created as a protest against the Word of God?
