A church of baptized pagans?

This from Mark over at Together for the Gospel which is fast becomming a personal rather than group blog!
“Consider what it means to have a church of baptized pagans. I remember a few years ago, reading in Mohtama Gandhi’s autobiography this frank admission: What I want to achieve what I have been striving and pining to achieve these thirty years is self-realization, to see God face to face, to attain Moksha (spiritual deliverance) . . . I have not yet found Him, but I am seeking after Him . . . For it is an unbroken fortune to me that I am still so far from Him . . . I have not seen Him, neither have I known Him, (Gandhi, Autobiography, p. 252).”

To KNOW God is our goal. With Lloyd-Jones I am happy to call that baptism in the Holy Spirit, but whatever you want to call it the question that is more important is HAVE YOU GOT THIS EXPERIENCE OF THE LIVING GOD and HAVING GOT IT ARE YOU PRESSING IN FOR MORE?
