A Serrated Edge

A Brief Defense of Biblical Satire and Trinitarian Skylarking

When Christ was confronted with ecclesiastical obstinacy and other forms of arrogance, he showed us a godly pattern for giving offense.

Perhaps they ought to have taken offense, and perhaps someone ought to have endeavored to give it.
