1. When God remembers his covenant with Noah and causes the flood to subside, he also chooses to forget.
  2. Salvation is not simply transactional; it is fundamentally relational. Not anemic, but full-blooded. Not disembodied, but bodied.
  3. The Gospel is gift, pure and simple. It is backwards. It is upside down. It is foolish. And as long as people are sinners, it is as relevant as ever.
  4. We don’t just need someone to bear our guilt and die for us. We also need someone to defeat all of the forces of sin and darkness and anxiety and depression that overwhelm us.
  5. The gelded Gospel is shiny and attractive and compelling, and we can perform the procedure in any number of ways.
