The Cool god Is a Puny god

Jon Bloom at Desiring God writes:

“Americans, and most westerners, live in cultures governed by the god called ‘Cool.’ Cool doesn’t have a temple we can see or visit, but his images and shrines are everywhere. Cool is a god that we actually invite to take up residence in the unholy of unholies of our fallen nature’s heart-temple. Once there, it entwines itself with our narcissistic selves, becoming part of our desired identity, the self-image we worship.

You can read and reflect on the rest of Jon’s thoughts in The Cool god Is a Puny god.

One thought on “Friday’s 5 to Live By

  1. Thanks all for their nice, informative and really
    excellent comments. But today I want to say about religious faith. We some have
    strong religious faith on the other hand someone has no faith at all. Is there
    any way to measurement the depth of religious faith? I was always confused
    about the depth and power of my faith on my religion. But today it is clear to me
    some days ago I got a nice application which is able to measure the religious
    faith. It is really funny too. I like to share this with all to you. I think
    you all will also get a lot of fun and will be astonished too.

    This Faith Announcer Application is used to Announce
    Religion Faith.
