“A Church for Exiles”

John Calvin, in stained glass


This article — written by a Christian in the Reformed tradition — makes an interesting case for the claim that Reformed Christianity is best suited for disciples of Jesus living in a rapidly emerging post-Christian America.


As I read it, I was thinking to myself of ways in which what the author says applies, or doesn’t apply, to the Latter-day Saints.


We certainly have a history of marginalization already, and of literal exile.


We don’t enjoy, yet, a particularly well-developed intellectual tradition.  Certainly not one that can be compared, academically, with the Thomistic movement or Augustinianism or the Institutes of John Calvin.  But then, neither did the early Christians . . .


This could prompt some solid reflection.
