We have the perfect message…

Before people benefit from the Good News, they’re likely to be bothered by the bad news. If our goal is to avoid conflict, we need a different message. If, on the other hand, our goal is to be truthful (something more difficult than open-minded) and loving (something far better than tolerant), then we have the perfect message and the ideal model of how to proclaim it.

Randy Newman, from Questioning Evangelism, p. 91
