Recently, one of my seminary heroes--Dr. Alvin Reid--wrote a brilliant blog post about shedding the baggage of Christianity and rediscovering "the great idea of the Gospel." Upon my request, Dr. Reid was gracious enough to let me pirate his work and publish it with Relevant Magazine.
As the article states:
"We must rediscover the great commission and great commandment. We must pursue a passion-driven Christianity. If our faith is to become a transformative, redemptive power within the culture, we need to flee guilt-driven, duty-centered puppetry and call down a passion for the great idea of the Gospel. "
Wanna make an even exchange--your guilt for His grace? Wanna reclaim the big idea of the Gospel? Then, give "Saying Goodbye to Guilt-Driven Christianity" a read, and tell me what you think.
