An interesting column that appeared a few days ago in the New York Times:
The author, Nicholas Kristof, has done a wonderful job not only at looking at how the evangelical world is re-defining itself in our day, but also at acknowledging how liberals have been sometimes a bit unfair in their (okay, our) wholesale dismissal of the evangelical community. As Kristof puts is, “robust criticism is fair, scorn is not.”
Theologically, I’m about as much of an evangelical as I am politically a Republican. But the Body of Christ goes a lot deeper than theology or liturgy or sacramental correctness. And articles like this give me hope that many opportunities do and will exist for Christians across the social and political spectrum to connect in truly Christlike ways.
