#24 Catchphrases

posted by Stephanie Drury

Christian culture enjoys a catchy quip on a t-shirt or bumper sticker. These quips are intended to provoke and possibly shame their reader.


It’s unclear what Christian culture’s motive is for doing this, when Christ was entirely about relationship and love. It is possible the Christians think that when people see their “Hell Ain’t Cool” bumper sticker, the holy spirit will work in their hearts. By this logic the holy spirit can’t work in people’s hearts quite as well if the Christians are wearing something normal or even, heaven forbid, something halfway self-expressive or hip.


Keeping up relationships with people is a lot of work. It’s way easier to proseletyze to them from your back bumper or your chestal region.

I have complained about this at great length, even when I was a church-goer. "Oh my word! God is that woman's co-pilot! I want God as my co-pilot, too! I wonder what church she goes to, cuz I wanna get saved!"

My faves: 1) 1 Cross+3 Nails=4givenThey left out the important part: The Spotless Lamb of God. Without that, nails and crosses don't mean much.2) "Stop drop and roll doesn't work in hell."How it changes lives: Aw man! I was bankin' on stop drop and roll to save me in the afterlife. Now what am I supposed to do?! (light of heaven shines on inquiring individual) Jesus, please come into my heart.Ta-daaa!

#210 Mandatory chapel at Bible college
Most Christian colleges require students to attend chapel services. Chapel is not an option, it's part of the curriculum. If you don't fulfill your chapel quota, you don't graduate. Though Christianity purports to operate under the auspices of grace and generally claims that church attendance isn't

#209 Perceiving persecution
Christian culture is vigilant about persecution. Jesus said being persecuted goes with the territory of following him, and some of those followers are really on the lookout. Christian culture sees persecution in all sorts of things and they often say they're under attack. The institution of marriage

#208 Missionary dating
When someone in Christian culture meets a delicious non-Christian they will usually assume a missionary position with them. Missionary dating is when you date a non-Christian for the express purpose of proselytizing so as to instigate their conversion. Youth group leaders heartily disapprove of mis

#207 Marrying young
Christian culture gets married young. The reason isn't entirely clear, but the general consensus is that it drastically lowers the risk of fornication. You just can't fornicate if you're married, and that takes care of that. Fornication is Christian culture's natural enemy. Bible colleges (aka
