I got to stand next to a stall today that in part was spruiking about some guys who were "Skating for Jesus" and it just didn't sit right with me. And this is not the first time it hasn't. I smiled in the movie Saved when Patrick, who had been on an evangelism mission skating for Jesus, confessed that he didn't really do much saving of souls he was really just there for the skating. It's not the "hey we Xns can be cool too" that bothers although that is kind of irksome. It's the elevating of a lowly secular activity to something worthy by saying that we're doing it for Jesus. Where as the reality is “skating for Jesus” is like “lying on the beach enjoying the sunset for Jesus”. The only reason you would have to add the "for Jesus" to anything is that deep down you believe that that activity in and of itself is not a worthwhile pursuit and that's what bugs me.
