Where do I get that? Why would I even want it? Because Jesus says to love my enemies — those most different from myself, doing things I would never ever do, because I’m better than they. So how do I get compassion for them, forgive them, extend grace to them, enjoy them? I find it […]

Typically for both good and bad reasons. Good reason: for the glory of Jesus, especially with pre-believers. Bad reason: so I can feel better about myself, have some righteousness/performance of my own. –ShepherdDave, unsatisfied with himself for the wrong reason, needing prayer for fresh conviction of sin, so he’ll be momentarily transformed into DumbSheepDave, who […]
We believers like to think it’s the world’s fault, not our own fault. If Jesus were making a wow difference in the lives of us believers, would the Bunny be replacing Jesus in such a widespread way? Would there be respect for a Jesus-centered holiday, if there was amazing humility and amazing love in believers, […]
Jesus was a friend of sinners and tax collectors, the nonreligious of His day. If we really are followers of Jesus, why don’t we hang out with and enjoy the nonreligious, instead of spending so much time with fellow believers? –WeakDave, trying to promote authentic, vulnerable friendships with pre-believers — more nonChristian fellowship and less […]

who leads people to external religious observance, but who does not change them on the inside, into being amazingly humble and amazingly loving and amazingly joyful and amazingly peaceful? Who would be the first to throw a stone at those outside the Church, who laugh at us who claim to follow Jesus, because they see […]
and credit God for the good ones? This produces fear and instability in believers, in my experience. Is God sovereign over everything, or not? We give Satan waaay too much credit/power/glory, by attributing hardship, adversity, suffering, to him. The problem is never with our circumstances, but always with the way Satan tempts us to view our circumstances: fearfully, as though there […]
