The Jackass Rule

The point of theology—I will die on this hill—is to help us become more like Jesus.

If the point of theology is to help us become more like Jesus, then I declare the Jackass Rule: “If your theology doesn’t make you less of a jackass, then your theology is worthless.”

(Yes, Jesus & Paul BOTH use words that were the equivalent of “jackass” and worse.)

Don’t go shouting “Jesus & the money changers!” “Jesus & the money changers!” to excuse self-righteous behavior. When we do that, we show by our behavior that we don’t understand that story.
