Maybe we DO need to dumb down the gospel

Mark Morford writes:

Six percent of Americans believe in unicorns. Thirty-six percent believe in UFOs. A whopping 24 percent believe dinosaurs and man hung out together. Eighteen percent still believe the sun revolves around the Earth. Nearly 30 percent believe cloud computing involves… actual clouds. A shockingly sad 18 percent, to this very day, believe the president is a Muslim.

Question:  How do you reach someone with the Gospel that believes in unicorns or that cloud computing involves actual clouds?

    Todd, besides the buffoonery of thinking the actual author is promoting and espousing, the reality is that the Gospel is not like any of these other propositions. The gospel is the power of God. It is child like faith God asks for to enter the kingdom and confidently it is childlike faith that believes in unicorns as well.

    Dumbing it down? Like I have that kind of power.
