I believe the church is in need of new wineskins. As the past few years have hinted at, and last week made crystal clear, evangelicalism is an old wineskin that is long past its expiration date. It was a new wineskin once and served the church well for a time, but it has become dry, brittle and broken.
Jesus teaches us to do good, especially to those who spew hate. We are also taught that whatever we give to others should be given freely, out of love. Although never a popular idea in any era, we are to be walking epistles of mercy, exercising restraint because of unmerited favor we have already received.
