How To Be A Perfect Christian
The Babylon Bee
Let me begin with a test. The first paragraph of this book reads as follows:
You want to be a perfect Christian, and that is a noble goal indeed. But first things first. It’s impossible to get to the maximum level of holiness if you’re currently attending a church that is focused on the wrong things, namely, on anything other than you.
If you believe this, this book is not for you. If you are upset because you are convinced that the author believes it is true, this book is not for you. However, if you recognize this as the typical satire and humor for which the Babylon Bee is known, this book needs to be on the top of your “to be read” list.
The Babylon Bee, for those who do not know, is a fictional newspapers covering and discussing all things Christian with a bit of satire — this book lives up to its reputation.
Beginning with the task of finding the perfect church (from which the above quote is taken). After moving the believer into the perfect church, the authors begin to discuss how we can tell others about our faith - beginning with the Internet. Among other details the authors discuss how to post your picture, using hashtags, the role of the Bible on your blog or web page.
Remembering that it is satire, the reader will learn something about themselves as well as the modern church. This may be “fake news,” but hidden in this 200 page book are some important insights for all of us who are part of The Church.
