Counter Culture by Emberblue Counter Culture by Emberblue
A logo I am working on for a Christian church teaching series.  The theme is that the followers of Jesus Christ are different, often we go against the grain of the majority of the world around us - so I thought it would be cool to illustrate that with a hippie style theme.  What do you guys think?

Well, to be honest, Christianity has copied from other religions. So you're not really going "against the grain."

o.o I didn't notice the fish before i read the comments, really creative design. But i don't think culture is the best word to use here.

Because I see culture as something good, beautiful, you know, writing, art and so, what raised the humans from barbarians to something finer. I doubt Christianity is against that. :-)

Oh, I see what you mean.  Yes, culture is beautiful. I think there was a misunderstanding between us somewhere.  I'm not trying to say that culture is bad.  The point of this deviation is that Christian culture most of the time goes against the grain of the other cultures around us.  Christians are different (in a good way). For example, I live in America and the majority of Americans (culture) believe that God does not exist, or if God does exist then there are many religions that lead to God.  Christianity on the other hand says that there is 1 true God and there is only 1 way through Jesus Christ.  Here is another example, the majority of American culture is selfish and "what's in it for me" but Christianity is focused on helping others (at least it is supposed to be, lol!)

So I'm not saying culture is bad.  I'm just saying that Christian culture most of the time is going in the opposite direction of other cultures.  Hope that clarifies things up a bit. :aww:
