I’m torn about re-posting this editorial from Huffington Post, because it’s an advertisement for a book. I’m shocked that shit like this exists.
If you’re asking this question, just take the atheist plunge. Belief isn’t for you if you’re going to use the bible in your daily life only to ignore the crazy.
Here’s an excerpt from the editorial:
In a nutshell, that e-mail explains why I wrote What’s the Least I Can Believe and Still Be a Christian? I want people like Shelly to know that a viable alternative exists to arrogant, judgmental, closed-minded religion. I also wrote the book for moderate and mainline churches. We in the moderate/mainline tradition have a compelling faith story to tell. However, we need practical resources to better share that story. So I devised a seven-week congregational initiative based on the book that moderate and mainline churches can use to better tell their story.
