Christian is not an adjective
By Reverend Bubba
Well today you get to learn a bit more about the Reverend Bubba. Over the years I have worn a variety of hats. For many years I wore a hat that had Principal written on it. With that tidbit of Bubba-Trivia embedded in your mind you may better understand my need to get a grammatical for a moment.
Christian is NOT an ADJECTIVE!
Okay, thanks for letting me get that off my chest. Let me explain. An adjective is a word that describes a noun (person, place or thing). How many times have you heard the word Christian attached as a descriptor to an endless series of nouns?
We have Christian music, Christian movies, Christian books, Christian television programming, Christian economics, Christian politics, Christian business and the list goes on. Using Christian as an adjective has two results.
At best it makes a "Christian subculture" that is not really concerned with things that are not of the Christian subculture. At the worst Christian becomes more of a marketing strategy.
I'm not completely sure what the advantages are to purchasing something Christian. It seems a little like the latest new and improved margarine-- you know it's supposed to be better, you're just not sure how.
