So the conversation led to some one's belief that if you want to fit in with "cool people" you have to be cool. If you want to fit in with "churchies" then you have to act like one. (Scroll down to read it)
First, you need to understand that through God's eye, there are only two groups: The Faithful, and the un-faithful. God doesn't classify us or put us in "sections". He is not up in Heaven saying "Stephanie doesn't look cool enough today, we'd better put her in the shabby group." or "Mark looks so good today! He should be in the awesome group." Jesus came to save the whole world, not just the cool people.
Second, when Jesus came to earth, He did not say "When I leave, be cool so people will like you." Instead He said: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven." John 5:16 (NKJV)
For others to notice your light, you'd have to be a lot brighter, or maybe a different color than their own. We should be different, so that we can glorify others through Christ, because of our differences.
So let your light shine, be different - be different in a way that shows Jesus Christ, so that others may learn to know what he did for us.
