Chameleon Christianity confronts two great temptations before God’s people – to either accommodate and blend into society as chameleons change colors, or to tribalize out of society in quarantined ghettoes. The first removes conflict with the world by compromise, the second eliminates contact with it by isolation. Both are forms of worldliness and are challenged by Jesus’ images of Christian identity as salt of the earth and light of the world. A practical and culturally aware sense of apologetics and a recovery of Christian community will be key pressure points for the health of the church into the future.
