Seen in yesterday’s NY Times: “The evangelicalism of old white men:”

download-3I am a big admirer of Shane Claiborne (more on him here) and he co-wrote, with Tony Campolo, this Times op-ed.

I have also been a fan of the Red Letter Christian movement. Whaddya think?

  1. Red is good color choice for people wanting to put Christ back in Christianity. Especially where politics is concerned.

    But I think it’s way too early to declare the death of “the evangelicalism of old white men.” While its claim to righteousness may have withered a looong time ago, its power, especially political power, remains intact…and considerable…and significant.

    And, from the sinners’ perspective, Red Letter Christians’ claim to a righteousness fit to supplant “the evangelicalism of old white men” is equally premature. So far, they’re just another voice in the cacophonous chaotic chorus of sincerely held belief that defines American Christianity.

    1. Oh, they’re still rattling around, but if people actually read the words of their Savior, they’d make no claims to righteousness, but to service. Let their actions speak.

        1. I have had this conversation in Sunday school since the time I was 12. Didn’t early Christians share everything? Shouldn’t we do the same?
