WSJ: The Perils of ‘Wannabe Cool’ Christianity

16 Aug

There’s an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal today called “The Perils of ‘Wannabe Cool’ Christianity“. It reminds me a little of what I wrote in “Treat Us Like We’re Stupid.”

Here’s an excerpt:

If we are interested in Christianity in any sort of serious way, it is not because it’s easy or trendy or popular. It’s because Jesus himself is appealing, and what he says rings true. It’s because the world we inhabit is utterly phony, ephemeral, narcissistic, image-obsessed and sex-drenched—and we want an alternative. It’s not because we want more of the same.
