PORNOGRAPHIC SENTIMENTALISM

Defined

Pornographic Sentimentalism: A man-centered airbrushing of the past that creates a fiction that never existed in the first place – – such that people lust after what was, though in fact it wasn’t.

Illustrated

“Now the rabble that was among them had a strong craving. And the people of Israel also wept again and said, “Oh that we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt that cost nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic (Numbers 11:4-5).”

 

“. . .Oh, in the good old days . . . we never had this struggle . . . we always . . .”

 

Alternative

Remember in a Christ-centered way (Joshua 4:21-24).

 

Fix our eyes on the author and perfecter of our faith (Hebrews 12:1-3).
