I like this guy...

Hey, here's a guy I like checking in on occasionally. I usually find his posts challenging in a good way. This is a link to an article on the word "Christian". He talks about how we tend to want to separate the sacred from the common by using the word "christian" to define or label the kind of music we listen to, books we read etc... Kind of reminds me of an old song by my old "Christian Music" Idol Steve Taylor (guilty by association).
  • So you need a new car? Let your fingers take a walk, through the business guide for the "born again" flock. You'll be keeping all your money in the kingdom now. And you'll only drink milk from a Christian cow. Don't you go casting your bread to keep the heathen well-fed. Line Christian pockets instead--avoid temptation. Guilty by association!

What do you think?

Hey Steve the link takes me to an article on the groundhog day... Is that the deep Christian thinker you were discussing??
