Relevant to what–exactly?

Relevant diaolgue

Being ‘relevant’ is what the first century church was not. It did not and could not ‘bow the knee’ to the ‘lordship’ of Caesar. Sadly the tardy hash tag of relevance has plagued the missional endeavours of many recent attempts of ‘freshly expressing’ the Christian faith.

“When I read stuff like this, my reaction isn’t anger. It’s an eye-roll. Churches should know better than to believe the myth that accommodation will swell their ranks. The opposite happens.” Andrew Walker

Andrew Walker’s words will be endorsed by anyone with any kind of comprehension of the de facto state of affairs that is fallen humanity. We are not ‘gods’ so that we fall at the feet of human reason or social mores. We are ‘Adam’, who is cast out of the garden—out of the presence of God.
