No Such Drift

“People do not drift toward Holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.”

Exodus33:19
19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.

A drawing in,a consumption if its God's will.But drifting in or sliping in the back door......nope.It states "whom" not christianity,Jew,orIslam(no collectives,religions,groups).God is speaking to the you,you,you,you,and you over there "whom"

God's grace,mercy,and glory!

Religions are fulll of people that approve themselves in.
