The Therapeutic Gospel: How does Faith go bad so fast?

"How did you go bankrupt?" "Two ways. Gradually, then suddenly." - Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises.
In living for Christ, we often find ourselves asking this question: when and how did our faith go bad in such a short amount of time? While on our faith journeys, we gradually, then suddenly discover that the fruit in our lives is spoiled and our rate of life change has come to a halt.
Living in New York City, the gospel is more therapeutic than it is an antiseptic. We want to be soothed and massaged, rather than really healed, which requires pain and discomfort.
Today, in your own sickness and sinfulness, do you want a fake placebo or real medicine? Where are the places where you need hard Truth to come and painfully, but genuinely, change your life? Listen in to find out.
