Non-historical views of salvation encourage us to ignore what is happening in the world and the Church’s role in it. Our average Christian’s non-story is an artless mix of Disney-ification (we cannot look too deeply into the troubling parts of life for fear it may mar our happy ending) and the deus ex machina (whatever story is taking place now is miraculously fixed by an intrusion unrelated to the story itself).
“The field prepared by our Lord is still open for work and workers. Please pray and think about giving to our ministry for 2017. We continue to equip the good people of Alabama with qualified training. Please partner with us as we share what G.K. Chesterton said was the gigantic secret of the Christian…the happiness found in only Jesus Christ.”
