This is a sermon I gave on November 8th, 2015. As I say at the beginning of it, I had approvingly posted on FB an article calling on Christians to “Stop Scaring the Hell Out of People.” In response I got the title question from a handful of folks. This sermon, admittedly a bit too long, was my response. Eventually I may transcribe it to text (I very rarely manuscript). In the meantime, the video is hosted on Vimeo. I welcome your feedback.
