Velvet Elvis pgs. 83-87, “Labels”

The overall point here is beautiful, and so appropo in this age where Christian ‘demographics’ drive a huge retail industry.  Frankly it sickens me, the market for “Christianity”.  The faith bought and sold and packaged conveniently on coffee mugs and breath mints.  The eternal mysteries and truths of God slapped on a t-shirt or a bumper sticker. 

Christian is indeed a noun, and not an adjective.  We would do well to remember this.  The only vague uneasiness I have in this section is that some might take it to mean that if you throw yourself into your work or whatever your passion is, you are a Christian.  This is not the case.  There are many very dedicated, hard-working atheists, Muslims, Buddhists, etc.  Having a passion for what you do does not make you a Christian.  However being a Christian should convey a passion for *everything* that God has placed in your life, and particularly, *everyone*.
