Honestly, it seems like there are a millions things on the minds of Americans right now and the potential of entering into another war seems like a strange little (and inconvenient) “gnat” only mildly clouding our attentions. We have been in international conflict for so long, for some it just seems like a “same old, same old” thing. I can remember not long ago that when our country was on the precipice of a international conflict (war) people would freak out.
I came across this today and felt like posting it, particuuarly as our country continues in its warring posture and stands on the precipice of another engagement.
My theology was shaken this week. Spending time in Thailand and India, I was able to walk through red light districts and peer into the eyes of women who had been shoved into the sex trade as young as 10 years old. Many American Christians love to preach a Christian gospel that promises happiness and health. How does our faith speak to such things?
If it was outrageous then, what makes it different now?
