I think I have finally come to accept the fact that I will never be a “cool” Christian.
Now, before you start to send me messages like, “C’mon Tim, you will never be a cool person, period”, let me proactively respond by saying, that’s harsh. But let me also explain what I mean.
Growing up in my bubble of a Bible Church in little Duncanville, Texas, I wanted to experience some form of social acceptance or popularity much like any other kid/teen in the world. Sports gave me this to a degree and being a pastor’s son provided me some notoriety, I suppose, but the idea of being cool was completely subjective and based upon my ability to take what I knew of the world’s definition and apply it to each area of my life.
This, of course, included my faith.
