Steve Chalke Interview

The Wittenburg Door has interviewed Steve Chalke.  I thought it was interesting, though the message of "empowerment" always concerns me.

I reached a stage where I felt that so much of the theology I grew upwith just didn't relate to my life at all. It just condemned me all the time, I felt guilty and useless, which I think in my teens or my twenties I kind of accepted. But I reached the point where I thought, "No, this is no good because if it's a condemning message that makes people feel bad about themselves then it robs them of hope." Slowly, I reached the place over years where I figured, actually, not only is this a non-empowering message, it's most importantly not the message of Jesus.
