- In the world of performancism, success equals life and failure is tantamount to death.
- What we do is important, but it is infinitely less important than what Jesus has done for us.
- Christianity is not about good people getting better.
- Rebellion and conformity are often opposite sides of the same coin.
- There’s a big difference in grace a lot vs. grace alone.
