I had an interesting experience last night. Lisa was showing me a youtube video that her group is going to use today in a presentation they are doing. As soon as the video started I knew it was Christian. Not just Christian, but evangelical Christian. Sure thing! About a minute in and they revealed their stripes. I knew it because I was a part of that culture for so long and am still in relationship with it.
No big deal. I get that. There are evangelicals and they are allowed to make youtube videos. The point I’m making is that Christianity, like any other religion, is constantly in danger of being cliche. In an attempt to be politically correct within the church and cool in the world, we lose our unique identity. Nobody hears you anymore.
But that’s what conformity does: it makes everyone the same.
