Tonight's discussion explored the irreligious teachings of Jesus from 2000 years ago. Running with this concept we discussed how Christians can be non-religious but yet still fully committed to the claims and person of Jesus. This means putting a relationship before the list of do's and don'ts. This means disregarding denominational barriers, this means looking past the methods and programs that are instituted to help us worship God and focus on God himself.
We finished the night unresolved on some way following Jesus may affect our behaviour, but next's week discussion will dig into a specific teaching of Christ which is now counter-cultural and may require a shift of mentality and radical changes of behaviour. It's time to figure out how living like Jesus will make us different, better and perhaps out of place.
