Several years ago I had the privilege of hearing Dallas Willard speak for a week at a local seminary. One thing he said even quite a few years ago still stands out to me today, showing how prophetic his ministry truly was in an age of bumper sticker theology.
“I don’t want to be known as the white male heterosexual leading authority on spiritual formation.”
Yet, we keep dividing, and sub-dividing, and slicing and dicing to further separate people and THEN we can decide if something is a “good idea.”
It’s heart breaking.
