Jesus isn't safe.
Yeah, I know: Duh.
Oh, we've tried to make him safe, but he remains the most dangerous man who ever lived. People who reject Christianity still say they approve of Jesus... but he's a tamer Jesus, who doesn't go around saying remarkable things that would rock their world, if they believed it. And people, like me, who embrace Christianity say they approve of Jesus... but he's a tamer Jesus, who doesn't go around saying remarkable things that would rock their world, if they believed it.
Hence the title of what will likely be a weekly podcast. I understand the "safe for the family" positioning statement of many Christian radio stations. They're saying, "You can listen to this station with your kids in the car, and we'll show respect for how you're trying to raise your kids." That's something few radio stations deliver, and it's admirable, and it's smart programming. As a dad, I even appreciate it.
...but here's another means to talk about stuff, if you're interested. As always, just like on the blog, the views expressed aren't everyone's at Air1, and may not even be mine by next week. I'm learning. These conversations aren't meant to be sermons, they are just that -- conversations, which, by way of comment on this blog, you are invited to join!
