Why are we surprised when seasoned Christians are disinterested in “going to church?” Is it a fair statement to say that their faith in God may be too deep for it? Joey wonders how a non-conformist like Matt fit into the Mars Hill Church culture for so long. We also speculate why Eugene Peterson retracted his statement we discussed last week.
If you don't know what we are referring to, read the follow up article here. Evangelical leader, Eugene Peterson said he would perform a same sex marriage if he was asked. Evangelicals freaked. He recanted or rethought his statement and said he still doesn't agree with same sex marriage. There was a huge twitter uproar from people on both sides of the debate. Once again, there are immediate reactions to everything and there is no chill.
