In contrast, I want to describe the other way of doing church. It is a kingdom of religion. It’s where we eat and drink. It’s where we draw sharp lines in the sand and say, thou shalt not cross over this line. It’s where gray areas are elevated to the level of moral absolutes. And the most disturbing part about a kingdom of eating and drinking is that it breeds a judgmental spirit. And where there is a judgmental spirit, unity is impossible.
