Trying to find ways to reach our culture, even well-intentioned church leaders have often soft-sold the Gospel. The Bible and it’s message is not inspiration but transformation. Love is not at war with truth. We aren’t in need of a “pick me up.” We are in need of being born again and then walking in newness of life. A few thoughts for disciples on the pilgrim path.
And the Pharisees and their scribes grumbled at his disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” And Jesus answered them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.” (Luke 5:30-32 ESV)
