But as I'm reading the Newbigin book I am realising that many who claim to have a Christian World View are actually still just as hostage to the rationalistic, violent and satanic hegemony of the prevailing western mindset as everyone else. They may have "Christian opinions" but their world view, that is their reflexive cultural linguistic reasoning, is actually distinctly un-Christian.

Sure, theologians may, in good faith, advance weighty arguments against same-sex relationships, but it is overwhelmingly clear that, among the pewtariat, homophobia is sustained by ignorance and prejudice.Now I need to stop blogging and do the dishes, but my point is I don't think having right opinions is any substitute for having a mind transformed and renewed into the image of Christ - where every thought is taken captive. Perhaps no one would disagree with that, but here is the more controversial idea: is the one with the right opinions but the wrong thinking better off than the one with the right thinking but the wrong opinions? Or even, with which is the world better off? Better an orthodox bigot than a liberal saint?
Let me know what you think,
but for now . . . suds await.
