A New Kind of Christian

I read this today from Brian McLaren's A New Kind of Christian and wanted to share it with everyone reading.

"I think some Christians use Jesus as a shortcut to being right. In the process they bypass becoming humble or wise. They figure if they say 'Jesus' enough, it guarantees they won't be stupid. ... That doesn't seem to be working! If people reject Jesus when they hear some half-baked would-be evangelist strutting his stuff and mocking the Buddha or Muhammad, I don't think they're really rejecting Jesus. They're rejecting the arrogance, ignorance, and bad taste of the preacher." ~Brian McLaren

You should read it - it's good.
