Christianity is For Losers

Jeremy wrote quite a controversial article over at relevantmagazine.com. I’m not sure why Christians like to think they are ‘good,’ or church is for ‘good’ people, or that pastors and other church leaders should be ‘good.’ Wait, I do, it’s because we are human. I just hope people can realize what a loser I am in this world while recognizing that in Christ, “there’s something different about him.”

Fake, religious Christianity is for winners–people that are good enough and have it all together. People who think that they do not need grace.

But true Christianity is for failures. People who screw up and know it. People who embrace grace at the risk of abusing it. People who are as shifty and unstable as the sand – and thus need a Rock on which to build.

It’s for losers.
