Check out this link to get an insightful post by Roger E. Olson on trivializing the gospel.
Olson tells about an article he picked up in a consumer setting that made a clumsy attempt to sell the reader on God by presenting God as “your biggest fan.” Olson does a fine job of showing how the article dishonors God and fails to represent him in a biblical way.
Alongside this woeful trend toward trivializing the gospel is the one that wants to make the gospel a consumer product. It is as if the consumer goes to the store and gets some cereal, some milk, and a little container of God, flavored to their personal taste. Just the way you like it!
It is hard to see how Christians can be a light to the world if all they do is try to seamlessly blend in with the culture and give no offense. I doubt Jesus is going to be very patient with such weak faith.
