Would Jesus tattoo Leviticus 19:28 on his left thigh?

Some Christians consider it borderline blasphemy to even ask the question.  Others are delighted to answer the question in the affirmative. Both parties can't be right.

In an age of Western apostasy, it should come as no surprise to find cultural apostasy leading the way.  In this pungent little book, Kevin Swanson challenges the modern Christians that capitulate to the post-Christian worldviews and cultural expressions.  He doggedly refuses to separate worldviews and culture, pressing hard for repentance, or a change of worldview in the mind of the reader.

Christians are too easily ruined by philosophy and vain deceit after the tradition of men (Col. 2:8), because they are not discerning of bad ideas and bad cultural devices. Kevin Swanson addresses such varying topics as major motion pictures, popular music, country music, eastern medicine, tattoos, computer games, horror literature, fantasy, sports, super heroes, Contemporary Christian Music, Hip Hop, Thomas Kinkade, Harry Potter, Jack Bauer, Sesame Street, and the Hunger Games.

Excerpt

"I am hopeful, because I believe that there are islands of community, culture, and freedom already forming. Wherever islands of a Christian social order reappear, a distinctly Christian culture may also develop. When the cultural Titanic begins to sink, there are always 'life-raft manufacturing centers.' Some may prefer to work the 'duct-tape repair units' in the engine room of the ship. At some point, however, the focus must shift to the life rafts. That is what is happening now..."

What Others Are Saying

This is an excellent book for Christians concerned with the current falling away from Biblical teaching and discernment which is prevalent in today's churches.
- Sherry

Having read several books in the scope of this topic, this is the best one I've ever read and gives a perspective that is different from any of the others. If you are a pastor or in a position of leadership in your church fellowship this is a must-read!
