Are you SURE you’re ready to hear this, Church? Alright, then… Buckle up.
If you think this is a ‘sit around and cry about how the world is going to hell in a handbasket’, weeping for the ‘good old days’ message, you’ve come to the wrong place.
In fact, the finger of blame for this issue might not even be pointing where you think it is. That by itself is both the bad news, AND the good news of this story. Bad, because the blame might not go where you want it to, and good because the power of driving change is closer than we might think.
Netflix is doing it’s ‘Gay Jesus’ thing. Maybe you’ve heard about it. Because what ELSE would you expect a group of moneyed people who were explicitly championing the ‘Fundamental Transformation’ of America to serve up?
Are we calling for Netflix to be canceled, or demanding Netflix to pull it?
No. There’s this thing called the First Amendment, and it’s big enough even for people to say some stupid, horrible, even blasphemous things.
This message is going a whole different direction… and we need to hear it.
Not ‘we’ in the sense of ‘those dirtbags over at Netflix who…’ but WE as in The Body Of Christ. We dropped the ball, and we need to own it.
But if we DROPPED the ball, guess what? That also means we can pick it up again.
Are you up for it, Church?
Or would you rather whine and complain about the glory days gone by?
