It’s a little too easy to blame the lack of interest in the Christian faith on the unbelievers. Could the real problem be closer to home?
The real message of Christ requires, not to put too fine a point on it, the real Christ.
Not some kind of Precious Moments figurine, or some Hipster in Birkenstocks handing out religious fortune cookies, or some guy who’s totally down with the latest fads and politically correct dictates of the Lavender Gestapo.
Do churches want the results of the real Jesus? Before that can happen, the world will first have to actually MEET the real Jesus.
And he’s nothing like the simpering, apologetic, milquetoast soy-boy most of us have seen Him portrayed as in pop culture. Hey pastors, don’t whine about cruddy culture if you push out gutless puppets instead of courageous prophets.
The actual Jesus? You know, the one churches have forgotten how to talk about because they’re more interested in being liked by the world than getting a Thumbs-up from the Almighty? He’s the original Badass.
He went to war with the Devil and won.
Why’d he do it? To save our dumb selves from running headlong into Hell like lemmings, so that we could join Him in a Kingdom worth living in — and for many that went before us, even worth dying for.
If we get another good look at who Jesus REALLY is, maybe the Church will catch that bold, world-changing spirit again, instead of turning tail and hiding in our holes when there’s a bad cough, until our government tells us it’s safe to come out.
Let’s take a look at who Jesus Christ really was, through fresh eyes. Let’s remember that we’re talking about the actual Dragon-slayer that all our myths were just the dim echoes of.
He didn’t just love us enough to rescue us from the consequences of our sin. He loves us enough to call us out on it, too.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
