Pastor Matt Chandler of the Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas, delivered a tough message from the pulpit last Sunday, proclaiming that the’ “incessant need” that some Christians have “to be seen as cool and relevant must die.”

“That’s not who we are,” he said, speaking to his fellow believers. “The marginalization that occurs because we love Christ shouldn’t be run from. We don’t live for this life alone.”

Watch Chandler’s brief, yet pointed, comments below:

(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));

Chandler went on to say that Christians should be “counter culture to this culture” and that there’s a danger in trying to make Jesus look “cool.”

“You’re never going to make Jesus so cool that everybody thinks he’s cool. Once you do that he’s not Christ anymore,” he said. “He’s some figment of your imagination.”
