No secret

A very quick reaction to – not really a review of – the book I just finished. (The Secret Message of Jesus: Uncovering the Truth That Could Change Everything by Brian D. McLaren.)

Some great insights into parts of the Bible, but missing some foundations too. The coming kingdom is un-hitched from its arrival on the cross. The secret/mystery does not lead to considering revelation. The eternal divide is not brought about through God’s judgement but by our obedience. There are great hopes for the world – but it’s ultimately semi-Pelagian.
