As Fixed Point’s executive director Larry Taunton says, “Christian apologetics doesn’t mean you go around apologizing for everything.” But if that was the definition of apologetics, BuzzFeed’s viral “I’m a Christian, But I’m Not…” video would be a model for apologists everywhere.

BuzzFeed “Christians” would like to be Christians but not one of “those Christians.” The focus is on what they’re not rather than what they are, and as Mollie Hemingway points out in The Federalist, “When you build your faith around what type of Christian you’re not, your faith is not built around Christ.” Watch the video for yourself and read Hemingway’s well-written and aptly titled response: “5 Most Cringeworthy Problems with BuzzFeed’s Viral ‘I’m Christian But I’m Not’ Video.”
