The Internet Monk has a recent rant that's worth reading called, "The Suburban Jesus Hates Me." Opines the iMonk,
"...I don’t get Jesus AND the American Dream. Some people do. Great. I don’t.Read it all here.
"...Suburban Christianity is frequently not about an honest following of Jesus. It’s about an edited, reworked Jesus who blesses the American way of life and our definition of normal and happy.
Good stuff. I've been saying for a long time that the Kingdom of Christ and the Kingdom of the American Dream cannot co-exist. One can only have one Lord.
