As we approach the election season it is best to remember the church is not in the business of moral theology nor is it in the business of fixing things. "While we were sinners Christ died for us." This means all people. The whole world. Beware of a message where grace is contingent on law and a place of moral high ground excluding the least, the last, and the lost. Jesus won by loosing.
We delude ourselves by thinking that our salvation can be achieved by keeping the books on others. We delude ourselves into thinking we are somehow less lost. We best not get to a place where we take a religious audit less we forget about the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector.
Jesus came to call sinners, not the pseudo-righteous; he came to raise the dead, not to buy drinks for the marginally alive.
