Grace That Takes The World Home Gratis

May 18, 20111

The world is drowning in religion. it is lying full fathom forty in the cults of spiritual growth, physical health, psychological self-improvement, and ethical probity—-not to mention the religions of money, success,upward mobility, sin prevention, and cooking without animal fats. But it is scared out of its wits by any mention of the grace that takes the world home gratis. Therefore, the first test of any new form of the church must always be: Is it sufficiently unacceptable to the world? Is it non-religious enough to get the church out of its twenty-century-long love affair with religious  respectability? If it isn’t, we should have no truck with it.”
