You’d think that the transition from a legalistic religion to an understanding of the gospel of grace would make life easier. It does in some ways. But it is also an “E ticket ride.”
E ticket ride? Today when you go to Disneyland, you pay a onetime entry fee, giving you access to everything. But before 1981, you needed individual tickets for each ride. They ranged from “A” tickets for the less spectacular rides, through B, C, and D for the more exciting ones. But the best attractions, like the Matterhorn Bobsleds, needed an E ticket.
