This is a nice talk that makes a good point, but it raised a question for me.
I’ve been hanging around American Christianity for about 25 years now. I’ve been a Christian for a bit over a decade. So far I’ve not encountered preachers who offer Christ merely as a tool to get to heaven. I’ve encountered lots who talk about Jesus and getting to heaven (or if they read NT Wright being a part of the restoration of heaven and earth). But I’ve not stumbled upon this large tribe of Christian clergy who talk of Jesus as if his only purpose was as a free pass through the pearly gates.
Am I just hanging out with the wrong crowd?
