"Just what does it take to get into heaven anyway? According to one author, the majority of Protestants and evangelicals believe that you get to heaven by being good.... What else would we expect after a generation of churches teaching how to raise drug–free kids, how to have better marriages, how to stay out of debt, how to vote—everything but the Gospel. If our spiritual lives were Jesus-shaped instead of church-shaped, maybe we would realize that the only thing that qualifies us for heaven is death and resurrection. Try preaching that Sunday after Sunday and see how quickly you can shrink your church." Jeff Dunn at Internet Monk
