Following the Progressive Jesus

This is both a troubling and provocative read. An excerpt:

Progressive Christianity is in the end a pull yourself up by the bootstraps enlightened humanism, where Jesus works as our Olympic coach to help us get the very best we can out of ourselves.  No nasty fallen nature, no dark enemy preventing us from advancing (except perhaps orthodox Christianity, which argues that we are dead in our sins and trespasses), no brutal cross or bloodied savior, no holy God too righteous to look upon sin.
