The church should be a safe haven to be real instead of a place of pressure to be perfect.
Authentic Christianity is marked by thankfulness and prayer.
Authentic Christians understand the gospel of Jesus.
In an interview about his latest book, Vanishing Grace, Yancey said: “In short, the West is becoming increasingly post-Christian, and we need to adjust our approach because the Good News no longer sounds like good news.”
To understand that good news, we first must understand the bad news: we all have sinned and deserve God’s righteous judgment. We stand before God guilty and condemned and we cannot save ourselves. That’s why we need a Savior.
