It boils down this: If we really want to follow Jesus, then we must embrace ALL of Him! This includes both his EXCLUSIVE TRUTH CLAIMS and his INCLUSIVE LOVE AIMS, as Rick Love (my mentor and friend) would say. Put another way, if we want to follow the historical, Biblical Jesus, we don't get to pick and choose only the aspects of Him that make us feel warm and fuzzy.
Although I'm not always good at it, I want to follow Jesus by surrendering all of me to all of God.
