Crossing Over Without the Cross

We are ... talking about crossing over. ... The term serves perfectly to describe a fact that hit me some seasons ago with the force of revelation.

No, rather "Look at how worldly popular evangelicalism has become to become acceptable. It changed more than the world did."

... One problem with crossing, with a cross over: it tends to lose the Cross. And that, as they say, is crucial.
