Kent Shaffer and the Refuge

I had planned to post a piece on John’s prologue and the missional Messiah but Kent Shaffer over at churchrelevance.com body slammed me with this confession:

“Stuff was holding us back in a variety of ways from being agile and ministering more biblically. And the comfortable suburban, Evangelical lifestyle was desensitizing me from living out the gospel as I knew I should yet never did. I used bad theology to make convenient excuses to justify my lifestyle. I was using complex yet comfortable systems to try to replace the simple yet uncomfortable mandates of Christ.”
