Jesus would not qualify for membership in many of our churches

This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”

Mike Frost on rediscovering the stories of Jesus:

Jesus would not qualify for a member in many of our churches. Even if he was admitted, it wouldn’t be long before he would be kicked out for subverting the church.
If this is true, why are we doing church this way? Why are we putting up with this? We can be part of a revolution…
He knows the rules and is prepared to subvert them. He hung out with sinners. How do prostitutes, homosexuals feel about us? They hate us. They didn’t just put up with Jesus, they loved him. How is it that we have become repulsive to the people who loved Jesus?

I've posted a summary and links to my notes here. I've also ordered the CDs. More to come.
