Calvin’s dad certainly has a point, doesn’t he? In his book, The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less, Barry Schwartz studies the many choices we have in America and says, “”Autonomy and Freedom of Choice are critical to our well being, and choice is critical to freedom and autonomy. Nonetheless, though modern Americans have more choice than any group of people ever has before, and thus, presumably, more freedom and autonomy, we don’t seem to be benefiting from it psychologically.”Screen Shot 2015-03-06 at 7.03.22 AM

What do you think?  Are more choices always good?  Should we who follow Christ be surprised that a choice-flooded culture resents our claiming Jesus as the only Savior?  {by the way, I prefer Extra Chunky Peanut Butter!}
