Making Christianity Apply to Your Life
Much of the history of Christianity has been devoted to domesticating Jesus—to reducing that elusive, enigmatic, paradoxical person to dimensions we can comprehend, understand and convert to our own purposes ...

But it does so without turning you into a mere intellectual. This is a fascinating study that shows how we are being transformed into the likeness of our Lord every day. This is an important article, the first of a series on Christ's Mind in us.
Most people want to serve God,
but only in an advisory capacity.
