Learning From the Past

I came upon this article in Newsweek this week. It looks at the current crisis of evangelicals in the US.

It lays out the historical development of the Evangelical movement in the US and looks at the current tensions. I found it a pretty insightful analysis of what's going on right now between the "Christian right" and new movements that incorporate more social justice traditions. I think they correctly point out that we're at another key moment of change, so I think it's a good time to look at the issues and figure out where we stand, especially in light of my small group's current study of the Sermon on the Mount.

Unfortunately, it seems like we don't learn from our mistakes and continue pursuing political power and the expense of the truth.
