Okay, maybe not literally, but if people are talking about the hopelessness of hell all around you, how can you not say anything?
This is what I feel like it’ll be like coming this Thursday at community group when we discuss Driscoll’s sermon about the rich man and Lazarus. I really don’t know what’s gonna come outta me there.
Anyway, I already had a weird reaction to something I said this last week when we were discussing the law being fulfilled by Jesus. A newer Christian was asking what that statement meant and after others had their go I explained how He said that the highest law is that of loving God with all our beings and loving our neighbor as ourselves, and since Jesus was love, he fulfilled that.
There was an awkward silence where I felt that somehow I was the odd man out, and then someone next to me spoke up (she’s one of the sweetest girls I’ve ever met, which felt ironic) and said that she disagreed. That Jesus was the ultimate holy example and how we can’t fulfill the law and were never meant to and He substituted Himself, etc.
It made me really sad. How can anyone disagree with the ultimate simplicity of God = Love, end of story?
