Voice of reason?

9-16-10 hopeful brain
I think I found a new voice of reason, thanks to an NPR report on David Platt, an Evangelical pastor.

Platt warns that we are following the values of culture, rather than the values of the Bible and values taught by Jesus. Our self-center interests and materialism are out of control and needs to be refocused back to sacrifice and service to others.

I personally believe many people have rejected religion and church-going in the last few decades because they can see the hypocrisy and two-facedness of many churches and self proclaimed Christians who can speak the words and quote some scripture, but who don’t act or live much by the principles of Jesus.

I’m going to go out and get myself a copy of this book. I’ll report back later.

This video can give you a sneak peek and you might decide that you are interested too in learning more.


  1. Interesting thoughts. I've heard that "Christians give Christ a bad name."

  2. He definitely has a good point. I've known many people who have turned away from religion and prefer to seek God in their own ways.
