Christianity Is More Like a Path Than a Box

Do you understand the Christian faith to be more like a path, with pilgrims that journey toward God, or a box, which persons can fall in and out of with the slightest temptation to sin? In today’s Seven Minute Seminary, Dr. Mark Ongley challenges our notions of grace and the metaphors we use to understand our journey with God. Read his blog post on the topic here.

Mark Ongley’s book, Into the Light: Redeeming the Church’s Discussion of Sexuality is available in our store, along with video segments that can be watched or studied by individuals and/or groups.
