Silly Cranky Evangelicals, Biblical Is Better!
D.C. Innes, World Magazine
Evangelical political conservatives over the last 30 years have fallen into an oppositional crankiness. Abortion stops a beating heart! (It does.) Two men don’t make a marriage! (They don’t.) Keep Christ in Christmas! (Obviously.) But the problem with the culture war is that we haven’t accomplished much, if anything. And for our efforts, too many people see Christianity as political and cultural nay-saying.
But the life to which Christ has redeemed us is a good life. It’s the life of incomparable joy and human flourishing, though also of trials and suffering. Biblical is better!
