Though Phil Johnson has retired from the blogging world, the Pyromaniacs blog continues to run some of his past articles. Today we find an article from 2005 wherein Johnson discusses the detrimental effects of evangelicalism’s tendency to jump on every bandwagon that remotely identifies as “Christian.” He writes:
Collectively, [these fads] have created an appetite for “the ugly and the superficial.” They have spawned more and more fads. Somewhere along the line, evangelicals got the notion that all the fads were good, because the relentless parade of bandwagons gave the illusion that evangelicals were gaining significant influence and visibility. No bandwagon was too weird to get in the parade. And the bigger, the better.
