Fear and love are perhaps the two most powerful feelings in the human experience, but it is important to realize that fear is the enemy of love.

Love and fear are not harmonious dance partners, but two warring sides who each long to eradicate the other. Fear makes it impossible to experience love... one may find fear and love mixed together, but when one does, what they are really seeing is a fight to the death where only one side will win.

Love eventually wins, or fear does—but it’s always one or the other.

Benjamin L. Corey thought he was suffering a crisis of faith, but it turned out to be a spiritual awakening. 

Corey, creator of the popular Formerly Fundie blog on Patheos, became aware that the constant fear of hell and judgment that defined his Christian faith was out of sync with the idea that God acts from love, and promises to deliver us from fear. He learned that what he had been taught was a distorted version of Christianity that was not only untrue but caused real spiritual harm, and that the “American Christianity” we are currently taught is actually a fear-saturated distortion of biblical faith.

He also discovered that he wasn’t alone. Many Christians are yearning to distinguish between the Christianity that has become a rigid American civil religion and the authentic Christian faith embodied in Jesus. As he recounts his own spiritual journey, Corey offers a powerful and inspiring message of hope for every Christian increasingly frustrated with the church today. You do not need to give up your faith; you can rediscover the reality of a vibrant Christianity that delivers us from fear and inspires and guides us all today.

Benjamin L. Corey confronts our vision of Jesus head-on, asking the hard question: Is what we see and hear in the modern church all there is to the message of Jesus… or is there a more radical side to Jesus than we have been led to believe?

Get ready to encounter a Jesus that is determined to turn over the tables of a stale, ineffective and boring gospel that seeks to escape from the world instead of transforming it.

Undiluted will invite you to step out of your comfort zone and into a process of rediscovering the radical, counter cultural, and life-changing message of Jesus.

When we rediscover the radical message of Jesus—a message that consistently, from beginning to end pronounced inclusion for the excluded, and love for the outcast—we rediscover a divine invitation to become the people who flip the tables, erase the lines, and remove barriers.
