“John the Baptist is clear–everyone has a way to change–and everyone needs to change. And it must be change that is embodied–lived out in right action, in changed behavior, not just changed minds.
John the Baptist is telling us–the way you are living is causing harm–and you have time to change. The God of love is coming near–and the way we live matters.
‘You brood of vipers’ was what John says to wake up the pious, not the backsliders–you think you have a pass, you think you’re beyond reproach–but there is no credentialing, no virtue signaling that is cover for the radical social change that Jesus is calling us to make.”
