A Quote from Volf from Bob

A quote via Bob Carlton:

Jesus was no prophet of “inclusion”, for whom the chief virtue was acceptance and the cardinal vice “intolerance”. Instead, he was the bringer of “grace”, who not only scandalously included “anyone” in the fellowship of “open commensality”, but made the “intolerant” demand of repentance and the “condescending” offer of forgiveness. The mission of Jesus consisted not simply in renaming the behavior that was falsely labelled “sinful” but also in re-making the people who have actually sinned or have suffered misfortune.
