The Barna Group has released a new study that concludes Christians reflect the self-righteousness of the Pharisees to the world far more than they do the love and life of Jesus. (Click image at left to see the results of the study.) While that may be a shock to some, it is clear that religious performance in self-righteousness or even in trying to get our prayers answered, actually makes us less like Jesus. In the backdrop of his three-week trip to Australia, Wayne discusses this study and what it demonstrates about the need for heart transformation that changes the way we think about God and how we live in the world. What we reflect is not usually the result of our projects or meetings, but how we treat people in the world with whom we come in contact.
