“Knowing God’s disapproval of sin, we often strive to become more ‘Christ-like’ and ‘godly’. Yet, Jesus Christ is both God and human. If we are to become more Christ-like, we will only become more human than before. As Eugene Peterson writes, ‘We don’t become more spiritual by becoming less human’...” I recently submitted an essay to … Continue reading Spiritual – Godly – Human

And is it not amazing that Jesus says that if we see … Continue reading Hugo’s version of 1 John 4:12
