Com'on, everybody...it is more fuel for the "spiritual, not religious" crowd to annoy the rest of us and paint us all with the same broad brush just because their ex-pastors are real people just as our priests are (and just as everyone is). I for one am pretty sick of this anti-hypocrisy hunt that doesn't lead to increased humility on the part of those writing the poems, making the Youtube videos, etc. Humility and the obedience that perfects it are great (and difficult to obtain!) virtues, but I don't see them praised here, but rather derided. That is sick.
What if I told you, Mr. Bethke, that Christ's example is one of the utmost humility and servitude that you have sadly equated with slavery? We are glad to be slaves of Christ and sons of God. It is much preferred to being slaves to our selves.
