Has the Church Become ‘Respectable’?

HowardThurman6“Too often the price exacted by society for security and respectability is that the Christian movement in its formal expression must be on the side of the strong against the weak. This is a matter of tremendous significance, for it reveals to what extent a religion that was born of a people acquainted with persecution and suffering has become the cornerstone of a civilization and of nations whose very position in modern life too often has been secured by a ruthless use of power applied to defenseless peoples.”

  1. Thanks for your comment, Kathy. The “Church” needs to de-link from a political agenda and get on with what Jesus commanded us to do.

  2. You’re right, Mariam. We ALL need to open our eyes and move into a more loving relationship with those around the world who don’t yet know Jesus. That doesn’t happen with bombs, drones and missiles.

  3. The church has much to answer for. It makes me shudder to think that some may not see it.

  4. Wow…thank you Howard Thurman and Dennis Upshur. I agree.
