Rev. Jonathan Fisk, the young pastor known for his lively Worldview Everlasting videos, has published a book entitled Broken – Seven “Christian” Rules That Every Christian Ought to Break as Often as Possible. This is a book that needs to get into the hands of Christians who are emergent, burnt out, disillusioned, lapsed, millennial, cynical, and the pastors who minister to them. What are the 7 rules that need to be broken?Well, it’s not quite as easy as just listing them apart from understanding what Rev. Fisk is trying to do in this book. He argues that Christians often get entangled in 7 misunderstandings or misperceptions that distort what Christianity is actually about. These misunderstandings, in turn, manifest themselves in different rules that Christians think they have to follow. But following these rules results in spiritual problems and frustrations. Actually, Christians need to break these rules, which they can do by the power of the Gospel and the truths of God’s Word.
