The Great Divide (Article 1)

Author: Mark Greene
Date: September 11th, 2018
Key Words: sacred/secular divide

Sacred/Secuarly Divide is the pervasive belief that life is an orange not a peach, that some segments of our life are really important to God – prayer, church services, church-based activities – but that others aren’t – work, school, university, sport, the arts, music, rest, sleep, hobbies. SSD is like a virus. It pervades the church and pretty much everyone I know has had it and is a carrier...SSD leads us to believe that really holy people become missionaries, moderately holy people become pastors, and people who are not much use to God get a job.
