Advice from Michael Bird

Let us allow the Australian New Testament scholar Michael Bird to discipline us a little bit in love:

“Our churches, some American ones in particular, need to spend less time telling non-Christians how to cope with being ‘left behind’ and start teaching Christians that to know Christ means to have fellowship with his sufferings and to be conformed to his death (Phil. 3:10)!” (Introducing Paul, 118).
