Reformed faith salsa style

Home » Uncategorized » Interesting article of the week » “For starters, we live in a culture that offers an abundance of choices and exalts everyone’s personal free will—we are encouraged to do what we want, whenever we want. We are told that we are masters and commanders of our lives. This leads us to try and individualize everything to suit our fancy. For example, we personalize our social circles by friending people on Facebook and unfriending others. We personalize our feeds on Twitter to see only what we want to see, allowing us to ignore that which we find irrelevant. We also personalize our cable channel listings, our radio channels on music apps, our sub sandwiches, our fantasy football teams, and our smartphones—just to name a few of the many things which we personalize to suit our preferences. If we can personalize our music, movies, and food, why can’t we customize Jesus the way we want? If we can personalize our music, movies, and food, why can’t we customize Jesus the way we want?” from “Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?: 12 False Christs” by Matthew Richard
