You need to lose your mind

‘When Jesus bids us come, he bids is come and die’ Bonhoeffer

In our world where faith has been reduced to no more than a set of ideas, and ‘The Truth’ to a rational, usually Scientific, understanding of the world, this means that Christianity in almost all forms, Conservative and Liberal alike, equates to changing our mind, or dying to old ways of thinking.

Never for a moment does it seem that Jesus actually meant saying no to our life and our plans, and following him.

Of course ‘a change of mind’ is needed, but only the realisation that we don’t know anything, and they only in laying down our lives, and following ‘The Truth’, will we find it.
