The Rev. Dr. Art Suggs started his Christianity 2.0 sermon series this way:

“As a Senior Pastor,  I am convinced that the Church Universal is in need of, and is in deed in the midst of, a new Reformation.

The Church in conversation with the world religions, and especially with the multiple branches of science, finds itself in need of an upgrade.

Redefining divinity, humanity, and the relationship between them, is now the prime directive for our time.

Previous understandings are clearly inadequate.

Therefore, my attempt at Christianity 2.0. It is time to install an upgrade .”

Oh, and Martin Luther? He had some issues with the Church and its rules in his time, too.
