So the title would have conquered the attention of atheists and staunch believers alike. Yes, Christianity is not cool at all. It was never cool since the beginning. In this strange world where people prefer brotherhood above timeless biblical quotes, Trump above Hillary(yes, strange ain’t it) Christianity and many other religious ideas need reformation. Christianity has become less relevant to the diverse culture of the modern era. We all love to make peace. But to spread peace you need not be a Christian.
Through this lenten season, I’ve been studying the book of Isaiah. I started it more so out of convenience than desire to. It’s what my devo website is doing and I happened to need a new devo plan so I did it.

If a blind man gaining sight Jn 9:1-41 isn’t an eye opener, listen to that conflict building between Jesus and the Pharisees. In the healing of the “Man born blind” there are two story lines taking place.

The man healed says little, he occasionally answers some questions presented before him.

The founders of AA were wise in avoiding any language that would turn recovery into an exclusive theological debaters club. God is defined as “God, as we understood Him.” There are obvious positives for this move. Let’s just focus on the essential spiritual principles of recovery! What about any negatives?
To speak and live the truth is what one of our biggest goals as Christians. It is our calling and our joy. In our purity of heart, we see no reason to be ashamed of proclaiming our faith to the world, because we would wish that everyone share what we know to be the only way to true life.
