Jim Robbins, author of Recover Your Good Heart, was recently a guest on a Family Room Media podcast entitled A New Heart dated 8/20/08. It was a great interview which I think everyone would enjoy hearing. Jim's emphasis is that in Christ, we've been given a new heart which is good. This is totally different from what we're told in most churches.
During the podcast, Jim made some profound statements that really impacted me and I want to share a few of them with you.
He said, "It's not just about being forgiven; it's the offer of a new heart."
Regarding the message taught at most churches today, he said, "The message of you're not doing enough morphs into you're not good enough."
Referring to the New Testament function of preaching, he said " Preaching has to change from ' our job is to make you something' to 'our job is to help you release something'."
"Our job becomes to help you release those resources that are store up in your heart."
