Modern evangelicals do not see that apart from a true worship of God, the "horizontal pieties" are not long for this world. Their current emphasis on family and social responsibilities at the expense of honoring God in appropriate worship is doomed to failure. Of course, emphasis on cultural engagement and family reformation is wonderful in its rightful place, which is when it is subordinated to the reverent worship of God - through Word and sacrament. Any other emphasis is simply refried liberalism in the great taco of unbelief.

Doug Wilson, A Serrated Edge

This quote, although true, isn't groundbreakingly profound or anything. I just liked the imagery in the last sentence.
