OK, I just read the second chapter of Waking the Dead. First off, how bad is it that in the first paragraph of the chapter, I almost instantly realized that he’s describing a scene from The Matrix? 8)

Anyway, here’s a great quote from the chapter: Truth doesn’t need a verse attached to it to be true.

Sometimes, I get sick of people trying to attach verses to things that should just be common sense. Not there’s not a place for Scripture in our lives (there’s a huge place for it). I just don’t think that when you tell your kid to go clean their room, you need to include “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.” (Eph. 6:1)

Oh, and as for the chapter, I keep thinking about how I was growing up and if I’d heard the Gospel packaged in this way, how would it have affected me? When my heart was more pliable and soft? It describes a way in which I viewed the world growing up but not in the context of the Gospel. Still thinking..
