I admire teachers like Chris because I came to Jesus as a skeptic and a doubter, so for better or worse, my b.s. meter is super low tolerance. Even a hint of game or manipulation or bad theology from the pulpit and I'm out.
So when people preach the gospel, as Chris does - straight up, double shot, no chaser - it burns so good, and I'm reminded how revolutionary Jesus actually is. Truly, the gospel, properly rendered, is crazy good news.
