John Piper on Hard Truth, Evangelism and Discipleship
". . . softening hard truth for evangelism in public undermines truth for the waffling believer in private.
I think in general this is what cultural adapters fail to realize: making the truth more palatable for unbelievers to help them make a step toward orthodoxy serves even more (it seems historically) to help loosely orthodox people feel how unpalatable orthodoxy is and move away from it." - John Piper
