Piggy backing off my last post, you simply MUST READ this one. Melissa (formerly Moore) in Calcutta, India.
N.T. Wright offered a much more eloquent answer to my issues in my post from the other day.
“The cry for justice in the world, then, must be taken up and amplified by the Christian church, as the proper response to the voice of the living God. The gospel of Jesus Christ and the power of the Spirit indicate that there are ways forward…Christians should be energetic in advocating and pursuing that justice for which all human beings long and which burst upon the world, in a fresh and unexpected way, through Jesus.” (N.T. Wright, Simply Christian, 228)
