“In the Garden” is Bad Theology

Despite the touching sentimentality of my grandmother’s favorite hymn, “In the Garden,” it is simply not true that you come to the garden alone with Jesus and “the joy we share as we tarry there none other has ever known.”  If you personal relationship with Jesus is utterly unique, then it is not properly Christian.
