Pastor Mel was quite pleased with himself. He finally figured out a way to word his ontological quest into a way he can accept and shout how he now gets it—this is what it all means.
“We were the perpetrators of a heinous crime against God by unjustly killing the innocent Son of His love. WE were the ones with the angry murderous hearts, saying “Crucify Him!”
“To summarize, in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ we see God’s restorative justice beautifully on display”.
“First, God heals, forgives, and restores the perpetrator—us”
For twenty years he had it all wrong. Isn’t this post high euphoria just going to be the biggest hangover ever? Now what? Where does he go from here?
“O Happy Day! What a glorious Day!”—Mel Wild
