Christianity: neither "hip" nor "cool"

FOLLOW-UP with Don Miller – Q & A

Q: How do you react to ministries that try to present Christianity as being cool and hip?A: There are many problems with trying to market the gospel of Jesus, not the least of which is that, in itself, it is not a cool or fashionable idea. It isn't supposed to be. It is supposed to be revolutionary. It's for people who are tired of trying to be cool, tired of trying to get the world to redeem them.

I’ll say AMEN and admit I’ve spent ¾ of my life attempting to be “cool.”  I should have gone with radical – of the least significant kind.  JB
