Love this analogy that Theologigal quotes from an article she read:
“We think that they want cake,
but they actually want steak and potatoes, and we keep giving them cake.”
“…the overabundance of cake-theology is, rightly so, making people nauseous. You can’t survive on cake. Your faith can’t survive on just the parts that tickle your ears and boost your self-esteem – a faith without any substance, any meat, will eventually be vomited up and you’ll go looking for something else to chew on to get that bad taste out of your mouth, and millions of people are doing just that.
But the true Gospel is very meaty.”
I encourage you to read the article and the rest of Theologigal’s thoughts!
I wish I had thought of that line. It’s exactly what’s happening in the church today. I’m new to this blogging thing, but I’m starting a series on the topic of False Teachers, the Emergent Church, the Prosperity Gospel and so on and so on etc.
