Kevin is right. Not all popular art misses the mark. Otherwise we wouldn’t be going with the Matrix motiff.
There is, however, a disease in our world that keeps us from seeing beyond our own perception of what is real.
Sadly, this disease goes undedected–especially when it is in the most beloved institution, the Church.
So called mainline Christianity has lost its bearings and its center. Mainline churches are so absorbed in the Matrix, they cannot make their way out. They want the fantasy that society listens to them, that the culture actually cares that they exist, therefore they will do anything to say nothing.
