Sunday School Answers

            Remember those answers that you’d give in Sunday school? The really simple ones, the ones, which we sometimes think, are shortchanging the question.

            Last night a group of folks and I worked backwards to this answer: Jesus is Lord.

            That was it. It was the climax of the discussion: three simple words we learned in kindergarten.

            There’s nothing fancy about that, but it’s revolutionary.

            Revolutionary because a child can understand this and then spend his whole life trying to learn it.

            Revolutionary because this simple answer will impact life in a profound way.

            Revolutionary because we discount it as a kid’s answer, when it is the answer.

            The legalist won’t like it cause it’s not rigorous enough. The super spiritual won’t like it cause it’s not detailed enough. But a sinner should love it.
