When I was younger I remember hearing the well intentioned, but guilt ridden mantra,”You may be the only glimps of Jesus some people ever get.”
I hope that isn’t true, but if it is, we sure don’t seem too concerned about being a very accurate picture.
The American Jesus is at best a poor reflection the biblical Jesus and most often a very ugly picture of mediocrity.
At worst, the American Jesus lives in direct opposition to the biblical Jesus, living in a spiritual denial of a faith not evident in everyday life, and yet arrogantly touted as right.
American Jesus often looks very similar to what we imagine Biblical Jesus to be, but in reality that’s only because it’s been so long since we’ve seen Biblical Jesus, that we now confuse the two.
This is where I will report the sightings of American Jesus as I see him.
