Just give me Jesus-but don’t make me change my ways

In the Answers magazine Dr John MacArthur quotes a person from an article in Christianity Today on the Emerging Church. “A young lady said she wants to be religious but isn’t prepared to let religion alter her lifestyle. “I’m a Jesus girl,” she said. “But I also like to go out and do tequila shots with my friends.” She does not understand what it means to follow Jesus. Until you get sick and tired of your old life of sin you won’t give it up to follow Jesus. And that is what he requires. P 56 Oct-Dec 2007 Answers Magazine
