#107 Overcompensating


Christian culture feels they are at a disadvantage when it comes to being cool. They want very much to be cool without being worldly, but it seems an impossible balance to strike.


As we've discussed here, Christian culture is stunted when it comes to knowing what is cool to people outside of their microcosm. This presents an obstacle when it comes to evangelism, and they vigorously set about making up the difference.
But in trying so hard to be cool they often don't seem very genuine, which is sort of what being cool is. This creates quite a vicious cycle indeed.
