The sermon on the mount equals recovery? I never would have thought that it could be boiled down to something so simple. I guess I don’t need to study that part of my bible. Thank you John Baker for providing churches with a book, and Rick Warren for promoting a study for small groups so no one has to think about this section of scripture ever again. According to you guys, it’s all about our healing and happiness. Yipee! I guess I should get into a small group and study this book (rather than the bible) and I’ll feel great. I might even stop overeating or might deal with the demons of all the problems and hang ups in my life. I’m sure I could share this series with Christians being persecuted around the world for their faith and they will agree, it’s all about recovery. Thanks boys for that!
(okay, so I’m a little bit sarcastic here…I just don’t like the marketing, the promises, nor the twisting of the bible scriptures into an 8 step self help plan).
