“Christians are not fussy”

“Christians are not fussy moralists who cluck their tongues over a world going to hell;  Christians are people who praise the God who is on our side.  Christians are not pious pretenders in the midst of a decadent culture;  Christians are robust witnesses to the God who is our help.  Christians are not fatigued outcasts who carry righteousness as a burden in a world where the wicked flourish; Christians are people who sing ‘Oh, blessed be God! . . . He didn’t abandon us defenseless.'” (Eugene Peterson, A Long Obedience in the Same Direction: 77).
