We’re doing a series of lessons called “Two Views.” The last lesson we looked at Two Views of God. This week, and for the next couple of weeks, we’ll look at Two Views of People, and after that, Two Views of Jesus.
In these introductory remarks before we begin our second installment, we talk about why we’d poke people’s settled religious views in the eye. Why irritate people over settled religious convictions? The reason is expediency. Our Christian spirituality has grown quite ill over the last few generations, and unless we go back and question our fundamental assumptions about following Jesus, we may never discern where we went wrong.
