The Theology of Calvin . . . and Hobbes (Apathy)

23 May

Apathy — Even Bible-believing, church-going, Jesus-following people can become apathetic. I’m reminded of a portrait of Jesus with the caption “Lord, do you care?” The picture then has Jesus on the cross saying, “I care this much.”

My good friend Dr. Allan McKechnie and I used to teach a course called “The Integration of Psychology and Theology.” My job was to review the theological basics of the Christian faith. His job was to stand up and say, “SO WHAT?” In other words, what are the practical ramifications of the doctrines we hold dear?

Today’s Challenge: Ask “SO WHAT?” as you think about living today with passion and love and courage. And don’t give an inch to apathy!
