A shell of its former self
Continuing our theological theme of late, here's a thought-provoking piece I stumbled upon over at the Christian Science Monitor the other day.
Thought-provoking and, in light of last week's ARIS survey, timely.
"This collapse will herald the arrival of an anti-Christian chapter of the post-Christian West. Intolerance of Christianity will rise to levels many of us have not believed possible in our lifetimes, and public policy will become hostile toward evangelical Christianity, seeing it as the opponent of the common good."The first of his bullet points had me assuming this was coming from the Left, but after reading the rest (and allusions to Francis Schaeffer, Gene Edward Veith and Doug Wilson on the man's blog) clearly it's not.
The author is Michael Spencer, a.k.a. iMonk. I sense a subtle "too spiritual for politics" vibe, which always drives me nuts, it looks like a worthy blog, chuck-full solid logic and genuine faith.
