Book: The Ragamuffin Gospel
"God loves you as you are, not as you should be" Brennan Manning.
That is the essence of the Ragamuffin Gospel. What does that mean? Is God really selective in whom He wants to be saved? Or does this have to do who we are or who we think we are? No, it is about understanding the gospel. To know that God loves us no matter what we have done in the past. No matter what we think of ourselves. He loves us. The gospel is good news. Because God loves us and forgives us. So any ragamuffin, any wacko sinner can be saved through God's grace and loving heart.
Both controversial and mindblowing. But we like a big of a mind boggling book, don't we? Well, Brennan teaches to expand our knowledge of God and His love for us.
