I have the privilege of posting over at Her.meneutics today with a deeper look at Christian celebrity. The post is titled, “Even Jesus Didn’t Live Like a Christian Celebrity.”
Here’s a snippet:
The kingdom of God is upside down, counterintuitive. Jesus stooped. He left the nirvana of heaven to hang out on this dusty earth. He made himself nothing (though he is everything) in order to rescue us. And his kingdom didn’t inaugurate via star preachers and ministers and authors and speakers and singers and actors. No, it began with ordinary men and women who had been turned upside down by the Preacher who had no place to lay his sacred head.
