If we wonder why, despite the millions of us who follow Christ, the world has not long ago been converted, we need not look far for one solution. We are not perceived as men on fire. We look too much like everyone else. We appear to be compromisers, people who say that they believe in everlasting life but actually live as though this life is the only one we have.
–Thomas Dubay, The Simple Life and Spiritual Freedom(San Francisco: Ignatius Press , 1981), 73.
