Lessons in the "20th Century Two-Step"

Brad Hightower, drawing on the work of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, talks about the 20th century church's "embarassingly superficial approach to sanctification":

I call this tendency to “skip to the end” or skip the process of sanctification altogether the 20th Century 2-step. In the 20th Century, Christianity became two basic steps: 1) Make a decision for Christ or “get saved” 2) Tell others about Jesus.

I think Brad's right. On the positive side, Brad not only observes the problem with 20th century spirituality, but offers suggestions for making today's Christians spiritually deeper.
