It’s nothing new that we live in a consumeristic, media-driven, fast-paced society that likes to have the newest, biggest, and coolest the moment it’s available. We’re always looking to obtain the next big thing, and I cannot help but wonder if we are doing this very thing in the way we view Christianity, the church and Jesus.
Many faith-based blogs are claiming that much of the Atheist community is in an uproar over Carrie Underwood’s new song, Something In The Water. Is this true? If so, how much of the world’s Atheists are country fans? I have no clue. Regardless, blog posts are circulating that many of them aren’t too happy about how much of her faith has found its way into her newest release.
Sometimes stuff hits the fan, and life is no longer the perfect picture we’d all hope it to be. And although our faith in Christ does bring us a new-found purpose and destiny, this is not to say that things aren’t ever going to be tough. No matter what you are going through, God is still good, all-powerful, all-knowing, and all comforting.
Many have said that today’s Christians are shallow, ill of deep-rooted theology, and unaware of who Christ really is in their life. And while my first reaction would be to fight this accusation, I can help but admit that we have a lack of legit disciples in our midst.
