Monday's FAITH Focus

I am reading an awesome book written by Mark Galli. Galli is a former Presbyterian minister and currently is the managing editor of Christianity Today. He titled his book,"Jesus Mean and Wild: The Unexpected Love of an Untamable God." Galli paints a ragged and lively picture of Jesus based on sections of Mark's gospel.

Eugene Peterson wrote a forward that was worth the price of the entire book. In it he said, "When evangelism is retooled as recruitment, then marketing strategies for making Jesus attractive to a consumer spirituality begin to proliferate. Words and aspects of Jesus that carry unwelcome connotations are suppressed. We emasculate Jesus."

WOW Eugene! Let's decide to present the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Anyting less betrays the biblical Jesus.

See Ya'll Tonight!
