The Jackass Rule

The point of theology—I will die on this hill—is to help us become more like Jesus. (Yes, Jesus & Paul BOTH use words that were the equivalent of “jackass” and worse.)

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.”

Don’t go shouting “Jesus & the money changers!” “Jesus & the money changers!” to excuse your self-righteous behavior. You show by your behavior that you don’t understand that story.
