Helen Lee writes: “It’s fine to use religious media as an addition if you are part of a local Christian community,” says Lindsay. “It becomes problematic if you have no binding commitment to a local community and you become a Lone Ranger Christian. Before long your faith becomes something you put on and off like a jacket.”
I realize that last line is a bit extreme, but I must say, in my experience Christian media is indeed no substitute for Christian community, despite the struggles we sometimes face in getting along with Christians very different to us. I know some of you are lone rangers however. I am interested in hearing more of your stories.
