Domesticating Jesus

"Many of us see the challenges before us and want God to make everything easy.  We want the Jesus of our best life now to give us a blanket and some hot cocoa, not send us out into a fearsome world . . . We have domesticated [Jesus] and left him a pale and weak reflection of himself.  The Jesus of Scripture is radically different from this Messiah of our own imagining." ~ Owen Strachan, The Risky Gospel
