"The world is like a blah piece of hamburger. It needs salt to preserve it and make it have the spice of eternal joy. But so much of the church today is taking its cues from the world--the TV and Radio and magazines and newspapers and secular culture-shaping voices--that the church turns out to be just another piece of blah hamburger. And when the church lands on the world what you get is NOT a salty hamburger but two pieces of blah unsalted hamburger."- John Piper

I was reading one of his sermons on marriage and this was included.
