The following quote from Michael Horton's book Christless Christianity: The Alternative Gospel of the American Church disquieted me. But perhaps you and I need to be disquieted.

I think that the church in America today is so obsessed with being practical, relevant, helpful, successful, and perhaps even well-liked that it nearly mirrors the world itself. Aside from the packaging, there is nothing that cannot be found in most churches today that could not be satisfied by any number of secular programs and self-help groups.
