I’ve lost plenty of sleep over David Kinnaman’s book, “unChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks About Christianity … and Why it matters.”
The book deals with a new generation of young people who see Christianity and the church as only anti-homosexual, sheltered, too political and judgmental. Where has this new generation got these ideas? From watching people who say they are followers of Jesus. Many of the new generation are claiming, “We want to be like Jesus, just not anything like the Christians we see.”
Christianity pretty much has an image problem. Too many who profess to be Christians, don’t act anything like Jesus in their lifestyle. I’ve even heard some who have dropped calling themselves “Christians,” because they think the word has been ruined by those who just talk-the-talk. They’re now referring to themselves as “Jesus followers.”
Are Christians like this? Do you see this perception?
I’ll give you more thoughts on this later … what do you think? Got an opinion?
