Jesus said that disciples must die, give up their family, rejoice even in suffering, and not worry about anything. Postmodern people in and out of the church hunger to explore those difficult teachings in a world gone soft. Not a Safe God allows them to do that. Author Tim Riter states: “Contemporary Christianity has focused so much on God’s goodness that perhaps we’ve forgotten he’s a lion. He’s not safe—not safe at all. He demands much of us and throws down the gauntlet to the fatal disease of complacency that has infected us. We’ve made God comfortable. But if we take him seriously, he’ll overturn our current lifestyles.”
