The I’m Okay Syndrome

I wanted to post my Crosswalk.com article here.  It reflects some of the material that I’m working on for a future book on 2nd Generation Christians:

Growing up in a Christian school, I loved having a few bad kids around. Not because I hung out with them or did what they did. I was too spiritual for that.

I loved the bad kids, because they made me look good by comparison. When someone get’s caught smoking, watching a forbidden movie, or getting too close to his girlfriend, it was a great opportunity for me to stick out my chest a little further and engage in good, old-fashioned gossip.
