I'm married to my beautiful, super smart wife Lauren. I'm also a Lutheran Pastor, serving at St. John Lutheran Church in Sudbury, MA. I'm a self-professed musician, writer, and am always seeking deeper relationships to God, myself, and others.

Your Own Personal (American) Jesus

I agree that these are stances and beliefs clearly opposed by the Gospel and are prevalent in the American Church. My disagreement with Pastor Watts is with his assertion that this way of sinning is somehow a new and uniquely American misrepresentation of God, Jesus, and Scripture.

When it comes to Sin, ehilr er Americans might put our own spin on it, our Sin is not very original.
