What difference does it make?
Sharing the Faith used to make some people mad because it challenged and clashed with their own strong beliefs. Today it makes a lot of people yawn—because they don’t have strong beliefs about anything.
Catholic Apologist Matt Nelson says this religious indifference is the great spiritual sickness of our age—a product of the relativism that dominates modern culture.
If you find fulfillment in your faith or lifestyle, great, the idea goes; but that doesn’t mean it’s true for me or anyone else.
The consequences of this mentality are all around us: a neglect of truth, apathy towards the important questions in the universe, and—since we’re designed to be fulfilled by God, not idle pleasures—widespread unhappiness.
In Just Whatever, Matt takes down the building blocks of religious indifference one by one. He looks at the three different kinds you tend to encounter in your friends and family members—and maybe in yourself!—to see where they come from and why they’re seductive.
In their place he offers a compelling vision of a world in which it matters what you believe, who you worship, and where authentic truth and authority reside. And he helps you present that vision to others with clarity and love.
