Recently after reading a recent blog post, a friend of ours sent us this quote from a missionary. It's full of depth and reflection. What do think? Leave a comment, or message me.
…in our contemporary society, where the Christian faith is tolerated as private opinion but is not permitted a role in public debate about public issues, the individual is relieved of responsibility. He or she can affirm the Gospel as private belief, but is not expected to proclaim it as public truth which all people ought to believe because it is true. In a society where the Christian faith has been privatized, we are free to affirm it within the security of our churches and our homes. We are not called upon constantly to test it by exposure to all the truth claims that come from the whole human enterprise of learning – whether secular or religious. But to hold it thus as private belief is an implicit denial of its truth. We can only hold it to be true if we are willing to proclaim it in every human context, in every human culture, and in every kind of human discipline.
