The Fertility Chaos of the Church

Check this out.

For weekly podcasts on these issues, please see here.

It is a very ugly aspect of our corporate discipleship gone askew when we obsess over “pretty” Bible-based Instagram accounts, (oh, I love your handwriting; where do you get those highlighters), but when it comes to the exposure of the life-shattering truth of God as revealed in these “pretty little pages”, there is so often furious complaint and churlish outrage from those who supposedly love Him more than life itself.

Blood, intestine & fractured bone

Perhaps we should have more Bible Instagram accounts with their pages soiled with blood and intestine and fractured bone? Wouldn’t that more accurately communicate the ferocity of the spiritual struggle around even basic Bible literacy in the Church?

We are spiritually adulterous when we posit biblical appetite on social media as a method for papering over the cracks in our personal submission to His authority over every single facet of our living.

“…until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.”

Ephesians 4:13-14
