No Turning Back
I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back, no turning back....so goes the old hymn. THe calvinist in me has occassionaly railed that the hymn makes too much of my own decision and not enough of His, and perhaps too much of a boast about my own ability to perservere in the faith.
Now, this week, as I reflect on my life and thought and the development of some key ideas about the gospel of grace. I find myself knowing deep inside that there is no going back to a former version of me, one that fits in with mainstream views. Cannot in all good conscience do it.
There is no turning back, no turning back.
