One of the most revolutionary aspects of Christianity is the promise that we can become like God. The Spirit is currently at work in us, transforming us. Because of his presence, we are transformed to bear fruit that looks like Jesus.
We sometimes think of the end of the world as bad news, but for the early church, it was a source of profound hope. There is a confidence to knowing that the King is coming back, evil will be judged, and the world will be renewed.
One of the most countercultural things about Christianity in the Roman world was it’s sexual ethic. This approach to sexuality is once again countercultural, but it offers an refreshing alternative that our culture desperately needs.
