So let me share with you one of the things I like to do. When I find myself in the company of Christians I like to pretend I am a Non-Christian. So today while I was down in Palm Springs I hand just such an opportunity. To his credit he didn’t try to save my soul in under 5 minutes and so when I had a chance I asked why Christians did not follow the teachings of Jesus? He looked me in the eye and said he had been pondering the same question, as was many of his young friends. He shared some thoughts about the state the church in America finds itself and I was more convinced then ever that the Spirit is at work in todays church. We then started a conversation about salvation if we did not assume everyone is born under the penalty of hell. He agreed this is not a teaching of Jesus but rather of chuech theologians, just then he got called away and I still remained a Non-Christian, but ever more devoted to my Jesus….
