This was recently sent to us from a White Horse Inn listener in the Seattle area:
I was flipping through radio stations on my way to work today and stopped for a moment on a Christian radio station and heard an advertisement for a Christian university with a concluding slogan that made me say out loud to myself “Wow! I can’t beleive that!” The school’s promise was that if I enrolled as a student I would be prepared to become “God’s creative and redemptive agent in the world.” I couldn’t believe this incredible offer since it sounded like they were making me a promise to become a member of the Trinity. So I did some research and confirmed on the school’s website that becoming “God’s Creative Agents” and “God’s Redemptive Agents” is in fact part of their vision for all students. Now, I don’t actually beleive that the school meant to say that they will help mold their students into the Messiah, but I wanted to pass this on to you yet another example of the common confusion that we are called to be the gospel rather than being called preach the gospel.
