His Message

 

"It seems to me that it is a minority that ever gets the true and full Gospel.
We just keep worshiping Jesus and arguing over the exact right way to do it. The amazing thing is that Jesus never once says, “worship me!”,
but he often says, “follow me” (e.g.,
Matthew 4:19).

Christianity is a lifestyle—a way of being in the world that is simple, non-violent, shared, inclusive, and loving.
We made it, however, into a formal established religion, in order to avoid the demanding lifestyle itself.
One could then be warlike, greedy, racist, selfish, and vain at the highest levels of the church, and still easily believe that Jesus is “my personal Lord and Savior.”
The world has no time for such silliness anymore.
The suffering on Earth is too great."
