Be Cool or Be Faithful?

So often what happens in the Evangelical church is mirrored in our political life. Wanting to be cool is a bad motivation, but we see that motivation in the church, which corrupts worship by the desire to be cool. Interestingly, this seems to be the political motivation for being a Democrat rather than a Republican in so many people. When the truth becomes subordinate to being cool, and faithfulness to being hip, darkness ensues. Jesus put it like this, “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness" (Matthew 6:22-23).
