APOLOGETICS or APOLOGY: What ever happened to a confessing church?

Church, when we spend our time and energy trying to weave an apologetics, trying to defend the worst of our histories, trying to build moral legitimacy for barbarism and slaver and bloodshed and torture in the name of the tortured one Jesus... our witness as a body and our message of grace is buried in the ground. We loose every ounce of moral legitimacy we have defending such wretchedness. Let's stop weaving an apologetic and instead simply apologize. The practice of confession is foundational to our faith is it not? Let us lead the way towards building reconciliation and forgiveness.

 YWAM perhaps it's time for a few more of those reconciliation walks?
