“I think we have really hyper-individualized Christianity.

We are comfortable with pastors laying out the implications of being a Christian in our personal lives, maybe even our family lives…but not our social lives.

When you group people together into communities, such as a neighborhood or national government, for some reason, we tend to keep God out of those arenas today.

Why are so many churches scared to tackle social issues like gun violence, education reform, racism, abortion, and so on? Why have we so privatized our Christianity?”

  1. Great question, I believe it has to do as leaders with unresolved issues of Lordship in our lives. When Jesus is our Lord and Savior we cannot compartmentalize Him in our lives because He is our life. If Jesus is not Lord of all, then He is not LORD of all.
