“Cotton Candy” Christians

Timothy Brindle once said…

“What the deal with Cotton Candy Christians

Who demand blessings but can’t stand afflictions

Compared to other things they barely love the King

Wanna be like Christ but not share in sufferings”

    i love that song.
    it’s true that we so easily disregard a theology of suffering for Christ, yet accept his suffering for us without counting the cost.

    It’s a song… hmmm… I guess I’m behind on this one. Now I’ll go Google it and see what I’ve been missing.

    Just stopping in to say hi, since I saw your comment over at CPYU. One of my favorite older memoirs in a similar vein is My Bondage and My Freedom. The stuff about family-breaking silenced me.

    Okay, found it. The song, I mean. Great voice.

    I’m thinking Brindle was going in a bit of a different direction though. : )

    Yeah, Brindle’s overall point is different. However I think this phrase here is right on point. our desire for blessings from Christ, while not sharing in the sufferings of Christ.
