But I come undone reading the gospels. It may sound like an oxymoron, but the gospels are full of law. They slam one's head hard into the wall. Reading the sermon on the mount again in this weekend's reading blew me away. The whole thing is powerful but Matthew 5:20 and 5:48 will take your breath away.
Who dares to stand under such standards? I think we be in trouble. Fortunately I know the rest of the story, but it does drive one to despair to think on such things.
