YUPPIES AND CHRISTIANITY

UTTERING CHRISTIAN CLICHÉS

YUPPIES CHRISTIANITY

Upwardly Mobile Professional Couples yuppies Chistianity

There is not a single new parishioner from the new high-tech and high-rise estates that go to a nearby church. Not one, in at least 20,000.

The residents are yuppies, mostly young “professional” couples: upwardly mobile, double-income, childless. The idea of church attendance is not merely unpopular among them; it is inconceivable. You could tell them any monstrous thing about the Christianity and they would believe it. They also wouldn’t care.

It would not matter how we advertised: Christianity could not possibly sell. Pre-packaged haute cuisine will sell, and the most expensive gizmos. Holidays in Kenya will sell. And breaking news on Trump is lapped up eagerly. Formal religion would take prep time that they just don’t have.

 

YUPPIES CHRISTIANITY

Yet they do have a religion that is in a sense, Christian. The coffee shops provide a kind of ritual. The clichés they utter are from Christianity of some sort. Some of them are ready for depression, but not for religion in any of its traditional forms.

TWO SIDES SAME COIN

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I don’t speak with human pride

I’m confessing that I stumble –
needing God to be my guide

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I’m not bragging of success
I’m admitting that I’ve failed
and cannot ever pay the debt

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I don’t think I know it all
I submit to my confusion
asking humbly to be taught

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I’m not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far too visible
but God believes I’m worth it

Understanding Spirituality

There is a feeling of connection with something larger than oneself. There is a sense that there is a deep part of a person’s life. There is no one definition of spirituality.

Some people insist on being spiritual and not religious. This could be impossible, because spirituality is the heart of religion, faith or a way of life. Spirituality nurtures religion and religion develops and forms spirituality. Spiritual people may not be part of an institutionalized religion, but they cannot help being religious. It all comes down to relationships.

Your purpose is not more wealth.

It’s not about you. The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It’s far greater than your family, your career, or even your wildest dreams and ambitions. If you want to know why you were placed on this planet, you must begin with God. You were born by His purpose and for His purpose.

WHAT CLOTHES WILL I WEAR?

In the Near Death Experiences, those who are met in Heaven seem to be dressed in what they felt comfortable in on earth.  

We will have a translucent body that’s able to do all that we use to do including touch, feel and even hug, all with a heightened level of awareness.
