I refuse to be told, “I have a meek and mild savior for you, and if you don’t accept him you will be tortured forever”. Anyone who believes this is a wicked and delusional idiot. I will not be talked to in that tone. That is the language of totalitarianism and dictatorship, and it’s a very great relief to know that it’s completely mythical.
I think this is a very concise and powerful way of encapsulating the entire Christian proposition. It is, however, on the offensive side of my current personal rhetoric scale, so I’m not likely to employ it very often. But in the cases where I might, I intend to commit this to memory. ::
