Desperately Miserable Christians?!
A younger Christian told me about her circle of friends, noting one characteristic in common with a group: single, employed, and theologically very conservative. They were, as a group, serious, committed, earnest, focussed, constantly vigilant and.......desperately miserable. They were aware of all the people they needed to avoid, not be tainted by or yoked to. Their life was a spiritual police-state.
As I listened and reflected I wondered....who wants that?
