A New Kind of Christian
I am challenged by the writings by Brian McLaren in, A New Kind of Christian.
In response to a question, one of the main characters, Neo, says," I'd say that 30 to 40 percent of your generation is modern, with the majoirty being postmodern. That's why it's so important--if you're going to have any impact at all on your generation for Christ-- for you to deal with these issues [of postmodernity], as lonely a road as it can be in the church at times. If you were a missionary going to Spain, you'd have to learn to think and speak Spanish. If you are a missionary going to any educated culture on earth today, I think you need to learn to think and speak postmodern."
The apostle Paul set out to be all things to all people ... in the world, but not of it. I am challenged to do the same today.
