Hood Ornament Jesus

From Brian McClaren’s book Everything Must Change:

The popular and domesticated Jesus…has become little more than a chrome-plated hood ornament on the guzzling Hummer of Western civilization…

I love this guy.

    That’s a great word picture. I can “see” that as I read those words.

    Yeah. Its so provocative, too.

    Really, its a pretty good summary of a large chunk of this book. Are Westerners going to use Jesus to endorse their preferred lifestyle, which is not sustainable – or will we allow a more authentic Jesus to speak to how we relate to others and to creation? Its a pretty profound question.
