Downtown Fresno is becoming a great place to go for clubs and music. Newer choices like Fulton 55 and older clubs like Kuppajoe All Ages Nightclub, are among some of the most popular, with many more popping up all the time.

Last year, while researching for my novel The Biggest Liar in Los Angeles, I got moved and excited by what I was learning about the two revivals that play a part in my story. And as I added that knowledge to what I had taken from a revival I witnessed, I sensed the solution to a mystery.

There is a certain brand of “Christianity” I have seen which makes me very, very sad. It’s a mind-set held by some within certain church circles that is about as contrary to the mind-set of Christ as one can come. It’s a mentality that basically says, without going so far as to use these words, “Jesus loves everyone, but he loves me most.” Another way of referring to it is to call it what it is: sheer racism.

What does it actually mean to be a Christian in America? I have traveled across a lot of the country and talked to a lot of church-people about their faith. What I’ve discovered is interesting.

“I’m a Christian who is against social justice,” is what one Christian basically said in a discussion I once heard about Christians’ role in social justice. To be honest, the comment made me sad. It made me sad because I know that there are a number of church-people out there who would agree with this statement even though it is in direct opposition to the teachings of the Christ they seek to follow.

Today I continue a long term series called “Evangelical Culture Myths.” I invite you to submit various sorts of cultural myths that we evangelicals tell. I’d love to cover some myths that you are interested in: either theological or practical in nature. Send them to me via email, FB, or Twitter (to tweet ideas, use this #EvangelicalMyths and “@kurtwillems”)!

If you are anywhere near the town of Exeter, be sure and stop in at the Cappella Coffee House. When you walk in you are greeted with the heavenly smell of coffee and a cozy atmosphere—requirements for any great coffee house—and chances are if it’s on the weekend there will be live music as well. And not only do they serve coffee and pastries, but also an all day breakfast and lunch menu.

When Jesus’ disciples, the men who travelled together with him for three years to learn under his tutelage, asked him to teach them how to pray, he gave them a very interesting model prayer. It’s one that has been prayed by many throughout the centuries, though I fear that many pray the words without really grasping what they mean.
