What a cool thing it is to connect with so many people, from so many places, and with so many perspectives. This is a post that was birthed out of my OPEN MIC blog post (BTW- still accepting submission ideas). I want to hear from others, about how God is at work in their own theological, philosophical, cultural, and social ethics journey. I personally do not endorse everything that the guest contributors have to say; and it is possible that I will outright disagree with them on some points, but I am always open to dialogue Here is our third guest post by a blogging friend, Robert Martin.
Something my wife mentioned recently made me wonder some stuff. Here are some questions that I think the Christian church in the USA needs to seriously ask themselves. Likewise, these are fair questions for any Christian in any society today. Please note, these are not political questions, these are ecclesiology (church) and missiology (mission) questions. They apply no matter what the politics, governmental structure, economic philosophy, or what not that you are currently living under.
1. If your government were to fail utterly today and a tyranny that is unfriendly to the mission of the church arise in its place, what would you, as a Christian, do differently?
2. If there is something you would do differently, why aren’t you doing it now?
3. What is preventing you from making those changes in your life?
I personally need to think very hard and very carefully about these. The answers may be a lot harder to deal with that appear on the surface.
What about you?
