Flashback: God’s Not Really That Holy, I’m Not Really That Bad

How do you know that you really get the gospel, that you really understand and believe it? Or perhaps better said, how do you know that the gospel has really gotten you, that it has taken hold of you and begun to permanently transform you?


It’s one thing to believe in Christian orthodoxy. It is another thing not to be embarrassed about it. —Andrew Walker
