Sit down for Jesus?

Posted in Christ and Culture,Christian Theology by sosipater on September 7, 2006

Check out Stan Guthrie’s article Sit Down, Sit Down for Jesus. (Contrary to rumor, the culture wars aren’t over. Nor should they be.) I don’t know if I am comfortable with the label “culture wars” anymore, but I did love this paragraph.

    Carl Henry, the first editor of Christianity Today, said as much almost six decades ago in his classic book, The Uneasy Conscience of Modern Fundamentalism. “The battle against evil in all its forms must be pressed unsparingly,” Henry said. “[W]e must pursue the enemy in politics, in economics, in science, in ethics—everywhere, in every field, we must pursue relentlessly.”

Of course as far as the enemy goes, we do not battle flesh and blood, that has to be kept in mind.
