Lots of people don’t get Jesus. Most of them are church people. Don’t get me wrong, they’re nice in a Dolores Umbridge kind of way.
Folks who miss the point of Jesus can be spotted easily. They’re usually talking more about upholding the faith than wondering how to live it. They have a Bible verse for everything and see endless outreach possibilities provided that everyone fits in with how they like things. They believe that everyone is lost and know how they should all be saved.
Paul points out that this view gets it all wrong (Romans 9.1-33). Grace and mercy are not owned by good people. Rather, God makes people good – whether they are terrible, plain, smart or just missing the point. Why not come along to Basement from 10am to discover more points that you’ve probably missed.
