What many Christian leaders have done with the truth of Christ is akin to performing an autopsy. They’ve taken that which is alive and have killed it, laid it out on a slab and cut it open … all in the attempt to figure out what makes it tick. Doing so allows it to be categorized and defined. Is it any wonder we would have to make applications for such teachings? After all, what good would this kind of teaching be without practical steps? If that which we’ve accepted as teaching has no real power in and of itself, perhaps it’s time to check its vital signs. We may be trying to resurrect what God already put to death in his son.
