This Seems Like Nonsense

Still coming to grips with the passing of our friend Caleb, Jay gives a talk that isn’t really anything new. The talk is more of an echo of a lot of other talks he’s given. At Revolution we want to not only disagree well but listen well too. So, if we listen better than we can disagree better. What if we stripped Christianity down to its core, to its basics? What if we took the idolatry out of Christianity? Christianity has been reshaped. It’s almost unrecognizable. It has gone from a religion of love back to a religion of law–and this legalism is causing strife and grief and it’s causing us to other the others in our lives. Have we gotten to a place where we care more about being right than we care about others? Do we need to stop and reevaluate? Let’s look inward. What are the doubts we have that we never share with people? What are the quiet questions we ask ourselves at night? How can we get back to love? How can we bring Christianity back into a practice of love? Right now, we’re not known for our love, as Jesus said we would be. Instead, we’re known for who we don’t love. We need to fix this. We need to ask the hard questions. We need to dive deep. And we need to find the narrow road. It's not easy but it’s worth it.
This talk was given on September 25, 2022 in Seattle, Washington.
