Truth: Sell It or Tell It?
Donald Miller posted this on his blog a few days ago.  The post began with the idea of what a book about God and the church would look like if written by evangelical leaders today.  His conclusion, which I am afraid I probably agree with, is that the book would look very little like bible.

Why is that?  Why do so many people feel like they need to make apologies for the gospel?

Is it exclusive? Yes.

Is is offensive to some? Yes.

Yet, in spite of these things (or maybe even because of them) the gospel remains the power of God unto salvation (Romans 1:16). So why do we feel the need to dress it up and make it appear to be something it is not?  Because, deep down in our hearts where we try not to dwell for long if at all, we don't trust God to save people His way.  We don't really believe that He will save people if we just faithfully proclaim what He has determined to be full of salvific power.

At the end of the day, we just don't have faith in our God.

God help us to have faith in You and Your gospel to accomplish what You desire for Your kingdom.

I married my beautiful bride Katherine back in May of 1998. Since then, we have been blessed with 4 wonderful kids (three girls and a boy). We have lived here in Rome since 1993 when Katherine and I met as freshmen at Berry College. I teach Math at one of the elementary schools here in town. Thanks for stopping by.
