8 Signs Your Christianity is Too Comfortable
THE TITLE “8 SIGNS YOUR CHRISTIANITY IS TOO COMFORTABLE” recently caught my eye. It is an article written by Brett McCracken and I found it on The Gospel Coalition website.
If you just want “the list” of the “8 Signs” you're too comfortable in your Christian faith, here they are:
- There is actually no friction between your Christianity and your partisan politics.
- There are no paradoxes, tensions, or unresolved questions.
- Your friends and coworkers are surprised to learn you’re a churchgoing Christian.
- You never think about or even remember the Sunday sermon on Monday.
- No one at your church ever annoys you.
- You never feel challenged, only affirmed.
- You never had to have a “truth in love” conversation with a fellow Christian.
- No one in your church could comment on any area of growth they’ve seen in you.
Hopefully, this list is thought provoking enough to read the article. You can read the article here.
I think McCracken is right in his general observation, “Comfort-seeking is our default mode in a consumerist society, so we often find ourselves in “comfortable Christianity” without even knowing it.”
If you want to reflect further on this idea, get his book Uncomfortable: The Awkward and Essential Challenge of Christian Community. Or better yet, read this book on “community” with someone else or with your community group.
