Chapter Plodding (No. 8): The Reluctant Evangelist- Our Lord is Kinder than Idols.
This week I am highlighting three noteworthy takeaways from chapter 7 of Coekin's work, The Reluctant Evangelist.

Western culture lives in a 'rights' culture and it has been magnified through social media. In the 'rights' culture autonomy is god. This worldview is narcissistic and pluralistic. (73)
We can tell which god we worship by how we spend our spare time, what we're devastated by losing, and where we turn in trouble. (74)
