The main point...

"The Christian faith isn't all about getting to heaven. It isn't all about the church. It isn't all about the individual spiritual life or 'personal relationship with God.' It is about all of these things, but they aren't the whole point, or even the main point. The main point is God's saving love for creation, God's faithfulness to all of creation, God's ongoing mission of healing a world torn by human injustice so that it can fulfill God's original dream. It is about God's kingdom coming to earth, and it is about God's will being done on earth as it is in heaven."
Brian D. McLaren, The Justice Project (2009)

I think McLaren is onto something!
