Harrison said, “There’s a division between the culture and the church. We’re talking about engaging a hostile culture. The culture by nature—by design—is hostile. Why are you wasting time trying to be nice to a culture that by nature is your enemy?”
“I think that sometimes as Christians that we don’t actually believe that life in Jesus is fulfilling,” Cooper said near the conclusion of the panel’s time. “We think it will be fulfilling once we die [in heaven].”
Just like he tells the crowds that come to see him at Skillet shows, Cooper said, “Life with Jesus is fulfilling now. What that means is that His law is good…when people live in the liberty of Christ it’s a really wonderful thing.”
Cooper encouraged Christians not to think that telling people the truth of Christ is being “mean to people.”
“Jesus offers freedom. Who the Son sets free is free indeed,” Cooper said as the panel ended.
