The Call to Repentance

In every case, Jesus confronted with the goal of creating a crisis—the sort of crisis that brings the person face-to-face with the call to repentance, to faith, to the possibility of a new creation.

Onward p. 195

The goal is not to win the argument. The goal is not to put people in their place. The goal is not to own our political opponents. The goal is not to feel or seem superior in our own or others’ eyes. The goal is repentance; repentance is born from an interaction laced with kindness and truth.
