An Important Question for Discussion

16 Jan

I have been enjoying the discussion on the blog lately and want to throw out what I think is an important question from Scot McKnight.  He asks:

How much of our vision for what God is doing in this world is shaped by a belief that God saves us in order to have an intimate relationship with him (personal piety) that flows over into fellowship with others, rather than Jesus’ bigger kingdom vision of what God is doing in this world and that personal piety is designed by God to prompt us to work for that vision?

I actually think this is a pretty central question to our understanding of God and what it means to be a Christ-follower.  I would love to hear your thoughts…
