What if Jesus meant all that stuff?

In Esquire, a letter to non-believers from Shane Claiborne, that puts into words many of things that I feel, including:

“Forgive us. Forgive us for the embarrassing things we have done in the name of God.”

“I am convinced that the Christian Gospel has as much to do with this life as the next, and that the message of that Gospel is not just about going up when we die but about bringing God’s Kingdom down. It was Jesus who taught us to pray that God’s will be done “on earth as it is in heaven.” On earth.”
