For those of you who watch American Idol…you may find this interesting.
How about that? It’s been burning up the blog-o-sphere, so I thought I’d put it here too. Interesting.
Although…I have to ponder this a bit. One of the comments on the Youtube page where I found this said: “Love love love that he’s Christian. There is nothing sexier than a hot guy saying “Jesus.” What church does he attend? “
Is there really nothing sexier than a hot guy saying “Jesus”? This isn’t to say that Jason’s faith is bogus…but something makes me shudder when I see the values of the Christian faith reduced to such shallow statements. I realize it is probably the ramblings of an adolescent girl…but in some ways, I feel like she has aptly described the undercurrents of our modern American church.
I don’t know. I like Jason Castro…he seems like a really nice kid, so this is in no way meant to denigrate him…but I’m so not interested in making Jesus “sexy” to appeal to the masses. Jesus calls us to a radical exchange in values…but I’m not so sure we’re hearing Him.
