What You Can Learn from Calvin and Hobbes about the Message and the Medium
This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”
Some things can't be reduced to bumper stickers and slogans:
If the subtle message of Calvin and Hobbes doesn't fit on t-shirts, bumper stickers, and bedsheets, then it seems unlikely that the message of Christ does. That the almighty and entirely holy God would undertake the costly work of reconciling sinners to himself – that one of the Trinity died on the cross for us and our salvation – that the Spirit would be poured out and dwell in a created temple without consuming it – who is sufficient for these things? If we can easily rule out some media as being inadequate for containing this message, is it possible to identify any medium that could be adequate?
Keith Green concluded his rant with, "I think the world is completely sick to its stomach with our sayings and 'witnessing tools.' It's time for us to be expressing the truth with our lives, and then the whole truth of God with our lips!"
