Love, Simon

love, simon

“You deserve everything you want”, a character tells the titular Simon (Nick Robinson) at one point, and just like that the prevalent mentality making waves across America has been perfectly encapsulated.

Christianity does not fly in contemporary Western culture not because of accusations of intolerance and bigotry; Christianity is lame because it tells us that no, we actually do not deserve everything our hearts desire.
Taking up our crosses and denying our pleasures for the sake of obedience is becoming increasingly more difficult in a culture in which everybody is entitled to do whatever they want.
