A Brief Word on Aversions and Our Need to Actually Fight

One thing the Church is good at is lobbing water balloons over the trenches during battle (thinking that somehow we are doing something helpful), all the while the enemy's .50 cal is mowing us down. Worse yet, many stand back thinking that they shouldn't even throw a water balloon, let alone engage in any form of battle. Unfortunately, at this point, I've already offended someone with the analogy. Our aversion to cultural engagement comes from a thorough conviction that Jesus would't want it that way, which is fueled by a quasi-Gnostic dualism that rejects any material "victory" in history.

*Also featured on New City Times* "They made kings, but not through me. They set up princes, but I knew it not. With their silver and gold they made idols for their own destruction." (Hosea 8:4) Given the fact that Trump-euphoria has swept the nation (where it's going is TBD), I thought I'd opine for a moment. Keep in mind a couple of things before your blood pressure elevates: 1) You came here. I didn't make you continue reading or stay. If you're going to comment, do so with at least some sort of courtly behavior. I'm fine with the delete button [...]
