Cross Quote #7

This one's from D. A. Carson:

I fear that the cross, without ever being disowned, is constantly in danger of being dismissed from the central place it must enjoy, by relatively peripheral insights that take on far too much weight. Whenever the periphery is in danger of displacing the center, we are not far removed from idolatry.
from The Cross and Christian Ministry (p. 26)

Perfect quote for where I am in my sermon planning for Sunday.
Thanks! How did you know it would come in handy as I was studying? (grin)
