Friends: As you know, my most recent book is Unlike Jesus! Let’s Stop Unfriending the World. I’m convinced many of us believers meet only with other Christians, watch only Christian movies, and eat only Christian casseroles. We make lousy friends because we’re not sure we’re supposed to be a friend of sinners!
In the next few posts, I’m going to hammer pretty hard on this idea of being a friend of sinners — like Jesus was! I have one goal in mind — to get you (and me) much more serious about the unbelievers we know and to challenge us to develop deep, committed friendships with them.
Just so you know, I’ve developed three videos which cover the basics of my book and can be used in a Zoom kind of church study. I would gladly lead the discussion (live) after your church group watches each video. All we have to do is schedule the meetings.
We’ve looked at the first two videos and a couple of short pitches for the book. Let’s look at a twelfth pitch, about the central question — Was Jesus a friend of sinners?!
