Tullian Strikes Again…

Sorry I’m posting so many quotes from this guy, I just can’t get his stuff out of my head.  Here’s one I came across while researching for a talk I’m giving tomorrow:

“Sadly, too many churches have helped perpetuate the impression that Christianity is primarily concerned with legislating morality.  Believe it or not, Christianity is not about good people getting better.  If anything, it is good news for bad people coping with their failure to be good.  The heart of the Christian faith is Good News, not good advice, good technique, or good behavior…  Too many people have walked away from the church, not because they’re walking away from Jesus, but because the church has walked away from Jesus.  Ask any of the ‘religious nones’ who answered their census questions differently in past years, and I guarantee you will hear a story about spiritual burnout or heavy-handed condemnation from fellow believers, or both.”
