The Theology of SAFE

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

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.

Safe is…

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.
