You notice the title of this blog is "Writing About Faith" - the problem is sometimes we either take our faith too serious or not serious enough.
With the list of "Jesus Junk" out there - it reduces our faith to an Americanized Commercial venture rather than transforming lives.
I think Faith is something we take for granted and really don't dwell on enough.
I think we have capitalized, marketed and even CEOed the Christian Faith. The problem isn't so much faith but what people have done with it.
We have made things like fundamental, evangelism, seeker, into dirty words. We have tele- Idol - evangelists and well cheesy "Christian huddle" ripp-offs of society.
Has this been what faith has been reduced to - some gimmic or promotion or marketing scheme?
What about discipleship, what about loving God and loving others? what about being a Christ follower?
I guess sometimes writing about faith is harder than one thinks.
