Thanks Brian!

This was very powerful! The Western Church has been heretical (like the Pharisees in their entrenched false religious choices) for so many centuries, and so ubiquitously/iniquitously on this great-gulf-fixed divide of God the eternal Lover and Restorer of our souls versus God the Sentencing Judge, that Western Christendom with devastating consequences simply lost its way - as far back as Augustine.

Tragically, Augustine's Pharisaical false choice/false gospel teaching dominated Western Roman Catholicism and Protestantism/Evangelicalism ever since. To now sound the sweet biblical note by contrast to most Christian leaders in the West creates impossible dissonance and presents as "heretical". What a perversion/inversion of the Gospel that "amazing grace/how sweet the sound" has been transposed into "amazing retributive justice/how sour the cacophony!" One has "eyes to see/ears to hear" this travesty or one does not. This travesty that leads to the triple evil of the Western Church's embrace/endorsement of "just war", "just retribution", and "just hell" is the ultimate bane of Western Christendom's anti-Christ anti-Gospel.

I posted a link to your podcast onto our Restorative Justice website (http://m2w2.com/wp/ - see http://m2w2.com/wp/about-m2w2/restorative-justice/, "M2/W2 Promotional Materials") here: http://wolc.com/podcast/god-is-like-jesus/. I entitled it: "God is Like Jesus: The Spiritual Heart of Restorative Justice".

Thanks and blessings!

Wayne
