A Must Read. . .REALLY!!!
Okay, I’m going to do something now that may not work, may be a complete waste of time—yours and mine.
But, here goes anyway!
Please (don’t make me beg!) go to http://www.harpers.org/ as soon as possible. Or, pick up a copy of Harper’s Magazine from a newsstand today.
Read the August 2005 article by Bill McKibben—The Christian Paradox: How a Faithful Nation Gets Jesus Wrong (pages 31ff).
In my view, McKibben, a self-described Christian environmentalist, sums up the current challenge facing Christians today in the United States.
He also completely and properly reframes an understanding of the culture war raging around us.
Let me know what you think!
