“An unconditional gospel-promise will always be suspected of fostering all sorts of theological and ethical mayhem: quietism, formlessness, antinomianism, cheap grace, social irresponsibility, and moral laxity. The ills of the modern world sooner or later will be blamed on the gospel- or some distorted form of it. ‘Now that the gospel has come,’ Luther quipped ‘men have learned the fine art of blaming all the evils of the world on it! As if these evils were not in the world before the gospel!'” (From Gerhard Forde’s “A More Radical Gospel”)
