The full message of the beauty of the gospel has been replaced by our desires to satisfy our material needs, to empirically prove our faith, and to establish a Caesar-style kingdom in our world. Exactly those things that Christ was tempted with—and rejected—in the wilderness. Zahnd shows that by following the teachings of the Beatitudes, the church can become a viable alternative to current-day political, commercial, and religious power and can actually achieve what these powers promise to provide but fail to deliver. Using stories from the lives of St.

In a world where the ugliness of rage and retaliation are driving the story line, Unconditional?

For some reason it also made me think of this…. Faith only advocates are very inconsistent when is comes to explaining the meaning of for the remission of sins that is found in the Scriptures.
Mark John came baptizing in the wilderness and preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. Faith only advocates proclaim that for in Acts actually means because of. In other words the on the Day of Pentecost repented and were baptized in water because their sin had already been forgiven.
