great quote. i think it was Philip Yancey who asked, "why can't the Church be more like AA? AA works because of radical honesty and radical dependence." sad to say, in my experience, this kind of honest transparency is often dangerous to display in the evangelical/fundamentalist sub-culture of the U.S. but there are the refreshing exceptions: a small, now defunct fellowship in the western suburbs of Chicago comes to mind.

Great quote! Thanks bro!


I must issue this disclaimer before I say anything, and that is:" Yes, Jesus never wants us to shun anyone, no matter who they are or what they did. I understand that and this idea of loving the unloved/lost.

I really don't agree with this idea. I'm not a parent but I don't want my kids to be around those who have no rules. Keep in mind, Jesus never was around the sinners when they were in their act of sinning. No way. To often we yell at the church for not hanging out with the unsaved. One is, I don't want my kids around BAD influences. Here is a quote, "YOu show me your friends, and I'll show you your future." We must be careful of who we choose to be our core group of friends.
