Sunday’s Message: “Christian This, Christian That …”

35704068_f863bcddd3In his book Velvet Elvis, Rob Bell stated that “Christian is a great noun and a poor adjective.” We listen to “Christian” music, read “Christian fishing,” sport “Christian” tattoos, and watch “Christian” TV. We delight in buying and surrounding ourselves with all sorts of “Jesus junk,” but does any of this mean that we’re actually following Jesus?

This message is a meditation on the dangers that can come when we get too used to using the word “Christian” as an adjective and apply it to “things,” rather than “people.”
