Mediocrity, the silent killer

From Tom White: In my opinion, corruption is not the main killer of Christian endeavor. We all recognize corruption and sin in our war with the devil. But just as high blood pressure is considered a silent killer in our physical bodies, the silent killer of the gospel is mediocrity - or, in biblical terms, being "lukewarm." A mediocre life is one that is neither good nor bad. Mediocre Christians may enjoy life simply because it is there, believing that as long as they have faith and are "good" people, they don't have to accomplish much of anything.
