Centuri0n quotes Phillip Jensen, from a recent 9Marks podcast:

“You can’t preach the Gospel to people you are afraid of.”

Cent’s comments: “That, my friends, is a statement that ought to change the way we view the “culture” discussion.

Steve Camp, in later comment: “Sure you can. But you cannot preach the gospel with power if you do not live in the fear of God.

So, whatcha think? I tend to go with cent, personally.
