At TGC – "The Age of Acceptable Lies"
Mike Cosper has a post at The Gospel Coalition today, called "The Age of Acceptable Lies." In it, he argues that a cultural background of lying lays the groundwork for those who argue for LGBT inclusion in the church, as well as those who simply dismiss the flaws of a candidate like Donald Trump.
"To survive in a culture of acceptable lying, one must constantly pick and choose what to believe, and our choices—which bath soap to buy, which cable news network to watch—are simultaneously driven by and shaping our desires. We mostly believe what we want to believe, and by choosing to believe what we want to believe, we confirm our beliefs."
