    I never understood the idea that Jesus was somehow the answer to all of our problems. Jesus is supposed to be something more than a deus ex machina and I never understood Him as some sort of “get out of jail for free card”. Rather I understood Jesus as a challenge and something much more powerful than Christus Victor and penal substitution.

    Rather I see Jesus as The Challenge in which we are called to create a Kingdom. I think this is the purpose of Jesus’ focus on forsaking our lives for Him and striving for the Kingdom of God.

    Perhaps I am ideologically biased, but that’s my take on Jesus’ teachings.
