My post earlier in the week created a lot more discussion than I imagined it would. A few thoughts:
- Some thought I was harsh (or too snarky), and I might have been even though that was not my intention. Please forgive me if you thought that.
- My main point of the post (which I should have been clearer with) is that we shouldn’t be afraid to call Christianity a religion, but it is so much more (as people who read the article will know).
- Lastly, if anything I say rubs you the wrong way or needs to be called out, I invite you to let me know. My rule of thumb is that whenever I get a chance to receive correction and grow in Christ—I take it! 🙂
Also, I noticed my emails didn’t go out for a couple of weeks, so here’s what you may have missed:
