Making Jesus in Our Image?

The New York Times investigates America’s struggle over its own practical theology, and focuses largely on David Platt’s still-bestselling book, Radical. This paragraph caught me:

Jesus, Platt notes, made it hard on his followers. He created a minichurch, not a mega one. Today, however, building budgets dwarf charitable budgets, and Jesus is portrayed as a genial suburban dude. “When we gather in our church building to sing and lift up our hands in worship, we may not actually be worshipping the Jesus of the Bible. Instead, we may be worshipping ourselves.”
