An Alternative to Bad Religion
Pastor Rob Myallis   -  

July 23, 2023

Bad religion makes us divide the world into people who are wheat and weeds (that is, good and bad; see Matthew 13)

Martin Luther, instead of seeing the world in terms of good and bad people, offered that each of us has wheat and weed in our lives — we are “Simul justus et peaccator” (saint and sinner).

Pastor Rob does not simply offer a history lesson, but teaches a way to wrestle prayerfully with the weeds within and open our hearts to glorify God for the wheat in our lives. This practice, in turn, can make a way for us to find common ground with the people whom we likely consider weeds.
