A Different View of Christianity

Wow, I hadn't heard of this dude till a friend sent me the link, but I think he's got the right idea:

We got such a skewed, one-sided view of Christianity in this country, in the media and in the popular culture's depiction of Christians, that a voice like his is so refreshing. When I was at the Cornerstone Festival last year, we saw some of this side of the church, but it definitely isn't as visible, loud, and obnoxious as the religious right.

This is extremely refreshing to read and thanks for pointing us to it! This is what I call the "Bill & Ted" simplified Christianity: in the NT, Jesus kept company with the outcasts - the people "polite society" thought so little about (prostitutes, tax collectors, etc.) He gave them unconditional love. So why would Jesus/God hate a group of people? I don't presume to think I know what God thinks, but, the examples given to us make it pretty clear to simply treat everyone well. I wish we heard more of that in the media. Remember Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure: "Be excellent to each other"

Thanks again, Dr. Paffenroth for giving your readers something good to think about.
