The CBC News (a Canadian News agency) recently did a story on a reporter who “embedded” himself with the “Christian Army”. Yeeks. The two videos take about 25 minutes to watch in total…but it is well worth it. It’s important for us as the church to listen to and understand the questions posed by those who try to understand us. In fact, the reporters questions form some of the most insightful stuff about the issues at hand.
Go take a look at them, and share what you think in the comments. I think the most damning statement made comes as he summarizes his perplexity that we (Christians) want to change the world “from a compound out in the middle of nowhere”. He concludes he has nothing to fear concerning their influence on the world at large.
It could even be an example of what I said in an earlier post…salt shaking out on salt.
