An Obligation to Panic: The Price of Cultural "Relevance"

Though I'll concede that the subtle messages communicated in our media culture have a palpable cumulative effect, I fully concur with Bob Bixby's disdain for evangelicalism's infatuation with cinema. It reminds me a bit of the whole End of the Spear kerfuffle way back in the day.

Here's a gem of a line from Bob's piece:
[T]he Evangelical American is obligated to panic. It would be bizarre to put one’s confidence in horses and chariots and then be unmoved when one is attacked by horses and chariots. You should be a afraid of what you trust in if what you trust in is being used against you.
