Passing the Faith Test

Worldly Fame vs. the Cross of Christ

December 10, 2020

What is the Christian's relationship with worldly fame? What is the worldview behind the zeitgeist and the songs that are most applauded by Christians and non-Christians alike, as compared to the Christian's worldview? We compare two public interviews from  popular media conducted with Pastor John MacArthur and one of the most popular Christian singers of the day, Lauren Daigel. At key moments, singers like Lauren Daigel and Carrie Underwood have been hesitant to take the Biblical position on the sins of the day. As we face faith tests, we must be willing to throw it all away--fame, popularity, careers, all of it--for the sake of Christ.
