What is their role in the Christian life?
If you were to survey an entire high school asking this yes or no question, I bet 80% of them would say YES.
“Is Christianity primarily about following a set of specific rules?”
Essentially, most people have no idea that salvation has nothing to do with rules. And until you debunk that, telling a student to follow Jesus because Jesus loves them is like telling a patient to fill out more forms because doc is concerned.
Thank Tim Keller for this insight
