Another Meyers quote
Christianity has become primarily a strategy for "victory," but it is an individual victory over debt, obesity, or low self-esteem, not a collective victory over injustice, poverty, war, or environmental degredation. Faith has become essentially an individual transaction, and the average image of God is that of a personal trainer. Much preaching today is framed as an invitation to God to come into our story, but the biblical invitation is radically different. We are being invited into God's story.
