Jesus + ? = Success

January 17, 2012

 Yesterday, we examined Galatians 5:1-15 in our 7 Minutes a Day series. Paul actually advocated that the false teachers in Galatia not only circumcise themselves, but to go the whole way to castration. He was exposing the error of their thinking. For a refresher, have a look at yesterday’s post.

I left off mentioning that I have spent years asking audiences what is inserted into a “Jesus +” formula in the modern church

Here are the most popular answers:

prayer                church attendance     missions                        Sunday school
worship              tithing                      spiritual gifts                   volunteering
Bible reading      obedience                relationship not religion    not being lukewarm
