How ‘Church of Cowards’ Skewers Pop Culture Hypocrites

Never has the “don’t choose a e book by its cowl” mantra been extra true than with Matt Walsh’s “Church of Cowards.”

When I opened Jeff Bezos’ field and pulled it out my first thought was, ‘This belongs within the 75 p.c off bin at Safeway.”

Boy, was I mistaken!

“Church of Cowards” is an excellent clarion name from probably the most essential conservative Christian writers of our day. It’s additionally a devastating indictment on what we’ve turn into as a Church in America.

In the opening Walsh tells the story of Christians in Egypt who sacrifice their lives for his or her religion. He juxtaposes that with how cozy Christians in America would fold their religion up if somebody took their cellphone away or canceled a favourite TV present.

Sadly, he’s most likely proper.

Christians shrugging off the indoctrination of souls by popular culture and never pushing again is one among many salient factors Walsh makes in “Church of Cowards.” It’s dangerous sufficient we let the faith of Hollywood get a grip on our souls by senseless leisure. It’s worse once we stand by and allow them to swallow our youngsters entire.

The writer takes purpose on the mega Churches of America for his or her lack of spiritual aesthetics, espresso store vibe and hipster Pastor strategy to the Gospel. Even worse? Think of these wishy-washy sermons with opening bands which are neither secular of their presentation, nor actually devoted of their dedication.

“Church of Cowards” leaves no cultural stone unturned. Consider its critiques of the next:

  • Prosperity Gospel
  • Gender wars
  • Social justice warriors
  • Hollywood hypocrites
  • The darkish facet of the faith-based movie business

Those who twist the Bible to make it match into a up to date, secular world for the only real function of being favored are additionally in his cross hairs.

Being “favored” is how one will get to promote their e book on Oprah, however Walsh isn’t fascinated by that. His entire level is that to be devoted to the Word of God you’ll by no means slot in and the world will hate you. That’s the excellent news in the event you’re dedicated to your religion.

He slams Hollywood for the reveals like “Scandal,” which featured an episode the place “Silent Night” performed within the background throughout an abortion process. He additionally name-checks “Curb Your Enthusiasm” for a sequence the place star Larry David urinates on an image of Jesus. 

“I might level to many examples of Hollywood’s overtly and gleefully mocking Christianity. The networks don’t at all times have industrial success with these reveals, however that doesn’t cease them from making an attempt,” he says.

“Church of Cowards” is just not some rant from a podcaster with an ax to grind with the world of Christianity. Walsh is clearly coming from his personal mindset, asking for a radical neighborhood of change in how we go to Church and the way we put on our religion.

The e book is considerate, Biblically sound, effectively researched and humorous at instances. If you’ve ever gone to Church in America you’ll see your self in its web page.

Walsh’s tome is a superb reminder that Jesus by no means pussyfooted round and neither ought to we. If you’ve not picked up a Bible these days, might I recommend you crack “Church of Cowards” first. That means you’ll know what’s anticipated of you if you do decide to the Bible.

Joseph Granda is the author/director of the forthcoming characteristic movie “The Healing Garden.” You can observe him on Facebook.

The put up How ‘Church of Cowards’ Skewers Pop Culture Hypocrites appeared first on Hollywood in Toto.
