This summer's study is Crucifying Morality.
Christianity is not moralism. Christianity is not religiosity. Jesus was
crucified because we are committed to saving ourselves by our
religious stamina and moral efforts. The Beatitudes in their simplicity
are not commands to be followed, principles to live by, or attitudes to
adopt. They profile people who have crucified their own morality in
Jesus death, resurrection, and rule.
Crucifying Morality walks through Matthew 5:1-12, where Jesus doesn't prescribe what ought to be in order to experience God's grace, but describes what is true of people who understand the grace of God.
