I'm married to the beautiful Bridget and father to four fantastic kiddos. We plant churches and live in a fifth-wheel camper. I write and smoke a pipe whenever I get the chance. Currently camped in Austin, TX.
“We did everything adults would do. What went wrong?” – Piggy, Lord of the Flies (William Golding)
The Church at large has fallen under the “what would Jesus do?” mentality. We try to do what we think He would do in certain situations. We try to say what we think He would say in certain situations. Then, when those situations don’t work out, we say to ourselves, “We did everything He would do. What went wrong?” The difference between adhering to a set of rules and actions and actually living by the indwelling Life of Another is the difference between death and life. One is religion, and one is the Body of the living, active Christ.
