Quote of the Day. Discussing Dallas Willard's thoughts on the reduction gospel today in senior bible class and how it is a far cry from "kingdom now", most of the students looked at me as if I had just told them I am the Easter Bunny. But for a few, it made total sense, as should be our reaction to Truth. When comparing a Gospel that is only about "heaven and hell" and "getting saved" vs. a Gospel of life in the Kingdom now and not yet. As the concept settled in, Jon Wedaman said,
"Its the difference between a cartoon lion and a real dangerous one."

Beautiful words. I love it.

This can't succeed as a matter of fact, that is exactly what I believe.
