Entire generations of Christians have been sold a vision of Christianity that you will NEVER see in scripture.
They look at the world and see a Big-D devil running the show and a little-j Jesus helping His church hang on for dear life until the final bell rings and the ref sends the fighters back to their corners.
Whatever that is, it isn’t the fire-in-the-belly Christ-is-king defiant-unto-death Christianity that turned entire cities upside down in the 1st century.
That bunch had the devil double-fisting glasses of Pepto and wondering what part of his kingdom would get plundered by Christians today — not the other way around.
If the church is going to be of any use to God and the world at all, we’ll need to return to that original script.
Eric Metaxas and I get into that (and some epic hunting stories) on today’s program.
Here’s the book we’re talking about.
Dear young Christian male, this book you’re about to read is meant to challenge you to your very core. Its intent is not to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Some of the chapters will upset you greatly, especially if you’re a dandy who was raised with kid gloves by a helicopter mommy.
That said, in addition to the holy introspection contained herein, this book will also shoot adrenaline into your soul. It’ll push you to be a Godly risk taker and earth shaker. A veritable Rebel With A Cause just like the Captain of Our Salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you want a feel-good book that tickles your ears and morphs you into a little Christian popinjay, this tome ain’t for you. You should put this book down and walk away from it immediately. However, if, young man, if … your motto is to give God your utmost for His highest, and you wanna live a life worthy of Christ’s death, then this book will be grist for your mill.
