Demonic ideology

Pastor Beecroft had a terrific article about the ideological causes underlying the cancellation of Issues, Etc. It reminded me of this bit from Robert Kelly, cited in Daniel Zager's essay in Through the Church the Song Goes On (p118):

The number one item of discussion should not revolve around "church growth," "spirituality," or "the public square," but around the question of what our way of life would look like if we really believed with all our hearts and minds that God has spoken an unconditional promise to us in Christ. This promise does not just make pursuing success North American style pointless, but reveals the ideology that supports such a quest as demonic.
