Today’s heresy is related to my theory of proportional discipleship, that no Christian’s devotion to God should be more than one standard deviation above society in general. Today’s heresy suggests that God is bound by a similar rule. He will never say anything or ask you to do anything that’s more than one standard deviation outside your comfort zone. Your comfort zone is sacred and God will never violate it.
But where do missionaries and martyrs come from, if God never calls us to be uncomfortable? Maybe missionaries and martyrs are different from you and me. Maybe they don’t mind serving God even when it costs them something. Maybe they’re in a different place than us.
Wait… that part about being in a different place… you don’t think that’s eternal or anything? I hope not.
