Things that I thought would be fun but actually end up killing my soul a little bit:
- reading the Christian news magazine WORLD
- pretending to talk and write like a Christian
Now is the time when all of my final papers and projects are due, all of which must be from a Christian perspective. Before I started I thought, no big deal, I know what the Christian perspective is, and anyway it’ll be kind of fun using words that I haven’t used in a long time, like sanctification, eschatology, spiritual discipline– not to mention the whole language of Wheaton evangelicalism that I worked so hard to become fluent in.
But man, it sucks. It actually makes me feel a little bit ill to have to do this.
