Beyond "mind-game Christianity"

John Frye has written a smack-on study of the idea that intellectual assent equals saving faith:
We like to think that forgiveness is a neat, clean transaction just between our mental agreement and God's Word (promise). Other people are actually peripheral or unnecessary. Not so, according to Jesus. There are very real social, relational connections between us and others and God and us. Nothing is private about forgiveness.
Amen. John's article is worth reading.
