I stole the following quote from the Leadership https://blog.christianitytoday.com/outofur/ blog, since i thought it had potential application for contemporary churches.
The church has bought into this idea that if we make Jesus look cool, we win. But we're really trying to make ourselves look cool, not Jesus. We certainly need to repent of that.
-Donald Miller, author of Blue Like Jazz and speaker at the 2006 Catalyst Conference
Taken from “Not Here to Make Jesus Cool” in the Summer 2006 issue of Leadership Journal. To see the quote IN context click on the cover of Leadership on this page.
