The most discouraging aspect of the discussion in this book is that it is, for the most part, between fellow Christians — a sort of civil war pitting brother against brother, sister against sister. If Christians of all stripes were united against poverty or sickness, that would be a glorious war, as they set aside their differences to do battle with a genuine enemy. But there is something sad when Christians at Answers in Genesis, at Al Mohler’s seminary, at the Discovery Institute and even at BioLogos attack each other over the topic of origins. And although nobody loses their lives in this war, there are real casualties, like Bruce Waltke, who lost his job last year for suggesting that evangelicals needed to take evolution seriously, or the faculty members at Calvin College on the hot seat for their publications about Adam.

  1. In some aspects I agree, in other aspects I don’t. It is discouraging to see Christians getting ugly with other Christians (on any topic). However I disagree with premise of one statement.
    “If Christians of all stripes were united against poverty or sickness, that would be a glorious war, as they set aside their differences to do battle with a genuine enemy.”
    Poverty or sickness is an enemy worthy to battle against, however, it is also a battle that cannot be won. They will be here when Christ returns. Instead, a genuine enemy would be sin. Fighting for the salvation of the souls of all humankind is a worthy battle against a genuine enemy. If Christians were united against sin, that would be a glorius war.

    1. I think that far too often, we see only the Social Gospel… The Social Gospel is temporal, and is important, but the Gospel of Repentence is Eternal.
