Lloyd-Jones on the Weakness in Evangelical Christianity

I recently read a sermon by Lloyd-Jones in which he deals with conversion (and false versions). I have decided to provide three quotes from the sermon in separate posts. This was at his conclusion: “I think the greatest weakness in evangelical Christianity today is that if forgets God. We are interested in experiences, we are interested in happiness, we are interested in subjective states. But the first need of every soul, as well shall see, is to be right with God. Nothing matters but that. The Gospel starts with God, because what is wrong with everybody is that they are in a wrong relationship to Him.” - From Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) – a sermon entitled “Temporary, Counterfeit, and True Conversion”
