The Necessity of Addressing Difficult Subjects in Preaching

It is to help Christian develop a Christian mind.  The Christian mind is not a mind which is thinking about specifically Christian or even religious topics, but a mind which is thinking about everything, however apparently 'secular,' and doing so 'christianly' or within a Christian frame of reference.  It is not a mind stuffed full with pat answers to every question, all neatly filed as in the memory bank of a computer; it is rather a mind which has absorbed biblical truths and Christian presuppositions so thoroughly that it is able to view every issue from a Christian perspective and so reach a Christian judgment about it.  John Stott, Between Two Worlds, p. 170.
