My good friend, Viz, write a great article on his thoughts about how we are so prone to worship our peers. Here’s the first paragraph:
Observation: men seek other men to identify with. The Gospel puts a twist on this: we are commanded to identify with Christ, both directly and indirectly. By directly, I mean that we’re to present our lives as living sacrifices, being transformed into Christlikeness (Romans 12:1-2). By indirectly, I mean that we’re to mark those who are conforming themselves to Christ, and follow them (Philippians 3:17). But instead, we young men seem far too impressed with those who should only be pointers to Christ. Read the rest.
