Sometimes, when I consider the things that evangelicals do to promote the faith, I am perplexed. Sometimes it's BMWs and $100 jeans that look like my year old $15 Wranglers. Sometimes it's missions movies that don't name the name of Jesus, or music about "purity" sung by a young lady wearing spandex. At other times, it's the promotion of specialty mortgage products and the endorsement of using one's home equity to buy new toys. My favorite is the "strongmen for Christ" schtick. Apparently our Lord is glorified when we lift weights to look like gladiators. Never mind the fact that it was Christians who put an end to gladiatorial contests--times have apparently changed.
Now, I don't have anything in particular against BMWs, nice clothes, mortgages, music, or movies. Is this all there is to life in Him, however? That we can yearn for the same things our unsaved friends live for? Personally, I'm hoping that my witness is a little bit more compelling than that.
