A Christian Manifesto

It is a strange thing to live in a way that is contrary to the flow of society. It is a never ending struggle. The flow is relentless, so our struggle must be constant lest we become swept away by the flow. There is a discipline to live counter culturally. It is wholly a conscious and unpopular act. In a world that embraces conformity, uniqueness is anathema.

We’re told that there is virtue to being unique, but that’s a deception. Worldly uniqueness is accepted only in so far as it fits within the parameters of a unified worldview. Forgiveness is not afforded to those who eschew the myth of tolerance, who hold to the truth of a Holy God who judges as well as loves, condemns as well as accepts.

Genuine counterculture is one that appeals to Divine reality in place of one fabricated by humanity. We’re condemned for the audacity to claim we know the one true God and live the one true faith. Yet, that is the Divine worldview.

And so we struggle against the flow, unwilling to compromise or yield. We are disciples of Christ; committed to more that this moment and this world. We’re lovers of God, seekers of wisdom, embracers of truth, and hopeful of heaven. We may not live like the rest of the world, but that’s because we long for something this world cannot offer. We seek a God we were created t know and an eternity we were meant to enjoy. And we make no apology for our faith.
