I’m ‘Not Ashamed’ either – but I won’t be wearing the badge | Ekklesia

The ???Not Ashamed??? campaign fails to promote the breadth and depth of Christian engagement in public life and thus does a disservice to the cause it claims to champion.

Like so many other initiatives, it gives the impression that British Christians are a paranoid group concerned only with their own interests and clinging desperately onto privileges which compromise their integrity.

And that really is something to be ashamed of.

I am inclined to agree (I suppose that means I do agree) with this comment from Simon Hill in his Ekklesia blog. What do you think?

    I’ve got to say I agree with the article too.For a start I don’t think Christians should wear badges.*I’m pretty sure Christ says, somewhere in the BIble, "By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." ** If we truly love others – if we act justly, love mercy and walk humbly and if we are always ready to give an account of the good news then what more should we need?I don’t know the details that Simon mentions in his post but I would be far more comfortable showing that I am not ashamed by living and speaking as God intended rather than wearing a badge.That’s what I think.*I should also say – I’m not against ALL badges – especially on one’s birthday.** It’s in John 13.
