...the Gospel must reach not only the intellect but the whole being. English people often say, "That's interesting, let's talk about it, let's explore it as an idea," but actually do nothing about it. To meet God means to enter into the 'cave of the tiger' -- it is not a pussy cat you meet -- it's a tiger. The realm of God is dangerous. You must enter into it and not just seek information about it.
