Thursday Reflection for Week 6

Ryan was away, and we discussed Claiborne and Klein in class after a few more presentations. But immediately after those presentations we had an interesting discussion about salvation and how that played into Jesus' teachings about who is in or out. I think it was Wess that mentioned that if we are trying to whittle down the person as to whether they are saved or not we are really devaluing them. And I would agree. I think it is just another way for us to draw the lines between "us" and "them" which is not what Jesus did. In fact, he did just the opposite, including those within the people of God which those in power did not include. God, please save us from this modernist fallacy...
