Good read at Neil Cole’s blog today on the sin of self-preservation.
Here is a noteworthy observation:
We often approach church and ministry with a theology of SAFE.
Self-preservation = our mission
Avoidance of the world and risk = wisdom
Financial security = responsible faith
Education = maturity
Does that not describe many of the churches, denominations or ministries you have encountered?
Sure does, and describes the theology of many Jesus followers also.
