Deconstructing Christianity's Simple Rx.

Go ahead continue living in your Prozac world! Deny how much you hurt. Keep telling yourself that everything is all right, that you love Jesus, that you love others, and that your trust in Christ is supplying you with fast-flowing streams of living water. Never listen to the few honest leaders who would let you know they still struggle. Continue gathering at that same church where the preacher, if he shares anything at all, describes either problems from long ago that he has now resolved or current, minor annoyances that fall short of revealing any vulnerability and surely not an ongoing battle with sin. Make sure his emphasis is in doctrinal accuracy and that he never promotes relational integrity or personal passion. Avoid like the plague a community of distraught people who, in their pursuit of more, ask questions that routine exegesis cannot handle.

Just stick with your Bible. Keep it simple. Do whatever God says.

Fred,

Ouch. I don't now you from anyone, happened to stumble upon your site, happen to be a minister in the CoC, read your post, and bookmarked your blog. Great stuff. Makes my blog feel insignificant. :-)
