Almost every food and beverage today has a “lite” version.
Many of us have taken that same attitude – sometimes even without realizing it – and applied it to our faith. We want blessings, but without obedience. Comfort, but without sacrifice. Happiness, but without repentance. As a result, we have decaffeinated and diluted the message of the gospel until it really has no effect on our lives or the lives of others.
In Christianity Lite Glen Berteau calls us back to the full gospel message: Jesus didn’t come to make our normal, selfish, sinful lives a little better. He came to radically transform life as we know it. This narrow way – the way of grace-inspired obedience – is the only way to find the real Jesus, real meaning, real hope, and a life where we’ll really live!
