Christianish

I recently received what for me is an early Christmas present:  a box of books.  One of them is “Christianish” by Mark Steele.  While I by no means have finished the book (I just got it yesterday), I have already enjoyed several of the questions that he offers at the end of each chapter.  Here are few for you perusal.

 

  1. Do you find yourself focusing entirely on your “major” sin issues, or do you ever take the time for introspection to discover the sins in yourself that the church considers “minor”?
  2. Are there sin issues that you do not address in your life because they make life in society “work better”?
  3. Do you agree that the kingdom of heaven is primarily for those who have reached the end of themselves?  What does the end of yourself look like?
  4. Do you find that your Christianity is steeped only in the pursuit of God’s grace – do you inadvertently seek other compensation?
  5. Are you known more for what you are for or are you known more for what you are against?

 

The book is chock full of questions like these, so I hope these are helpful.  As I dig deeper, I’ll write more about what Steele has to say.

This article also appears at the Raleigh Examiner.  Read it there and help me earn a penny.

  1. Damn, that sound’s so easy if you think about it.
