What did you learn today?

I want to give a quick shoutout and THANK YOU to Dave Brecheisen. I chatted briefly with him today and he told me to check out Mark Driscoll. I did and I love it. I appreciate his blunt truth and he makes me laugh.I feel a sense of happiness and relief to hear him say some things I have been thinking but maybe feeling too young in my faith to spell out. here is the best quote I found from him so far:

"You have been told that God is a loving, gracious, merciful, kind, compassionate, wonderful, and good sky fairy who runs a day care in the sky and has a bucket of suckers for everyone because we're all good people. That is a lie... God looks down and says 'I hate you, you are my enemy, and I will crush you,' and we say that is deserved, right and just, and then God says 'Because of Jesus I will love you and forgive you.' This is a miracle."

Bucket of sucker? SKY FAIRY? he kills me. A little harsh, maybe a little too mean but the idea I get. and like.

Undoubtedly more to come on this on. Thanks Dave. Good looking out.
