My Progressive Christian Agenda

My Progressive Christian Agenda June 11, 2013

Christian, liberal, progressive, agenda, love, kindness

by Mark Sandlin (and friends)

“That’s not Christian! You’re using Jesus to promote your liberal agenda!”

I’m getting this a lot. I’ve spent a good deal of my life reading and studying the Bible (even going to graduate school for it). One of the things I do now is write this blog about what I’ve learned.

The interesting thing is, I very frequently get accused of promoting a progressive agenda. Frankly, I think that says more about the Bible than it does about me. It’s also been said that “the truth has a liberal bias.” So, there’s that too.

Well, if I’m going to be accused of having a progressive agenda, I might as well know what it is. So, I asked my friends on The God Article’s Facebook page what their “#1 priority as a progressive Christian”? Then, using their thoughts and mine, I put together this little “To Do” list. I wouldn’t exactly call it a complete list — but it’s a good start. I don’t get it right every day but I am trying.


In the future, when people accuse me of having a liberal or progressive agenda, I’m probably going to agree and share this with them.
