monday's food for thought

from my current reading....

"Christian is a great noun and a poor adjective. ... the problem with turning a noun into an adjective and then tacking it onto words is that it can create categories that limit the truth. here's what i mean: something can be labeled "Christian" and not be true or good. (and) in the same way, something can be true and not be labeled Christian."

what do you think?

I completely agree. We cheapen "Christian" with many of the things we attach it to ... Testa-mints, anyone? So tasty, minty and faith-filled :-)
