“The real damage is done by those millions who want to 'survive.' The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes." 1/
"Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves—or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small." 2/
"It’s the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you’ll keep it under control. If you don’t make any noise, the bogeyman won’t find you. But it’s all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe."

Walter Rauschenbusch (1861-1918) was one of the leading proponents of what came to be known as the Social Gospel. The movement ultimately rejected historic orthodox Christianity in favor of social work to bring about God’s kingdom on earth. 1/
Spend some time reading these Rauschenbusch quotes and decide for yourself whether or not we should be concerned that we’re hearing the same sort of statements from evangelical leaders. 2/…
“The prophets were not religious individualists. ...they always dealt with Israel and Judah as organic totalities. They conceived of their people as a gigantic personality which sinned as one and ought to repent as one.” 3/

I had a nightmare that my wife was leaving me and didn’t want me seeing the kids. Nothing I tried would change her mind. It was awful. I woke up in a panic at 4am and haven’t been back to sleep. That’s how I feel watching everything collapse around us - completely powerless. 1/
I don’t know how people manage their anxiety without faith in a sovereign and loving God who works all things together for good. I can’t imagine going through this without a deep reservoir of peace from which to draw. 2/
If you find yourself hopeless, I want you to have hope. Not in a miracle cure which may or may not come. Not in a future economic recovery. Certainly not in our leaders. Things are likely to get much worse before they get better. 3/

There seems to be a common misconception that the concern about Critical Theory in the church is *really* about promoting Trumpism and right-wing politics. See the discussion in this thread with @lukestamps. Allow me to offer a better explanation. 1/

First, some backstory. I was staunchly #NeverTrump during the 2016 election. As a conservative living in California at the time, I felt caught in between a country tearing itself apart. As a result, I developed a strong burden to work on healing the divide. 2/
My Christian convictions prevented me from finding common cause with those across the divide on many if not most cultural issues. Racial issues, however, seemed like a good opportunity for bridge-building. 3/

Critical Theory, as applied by Christians, is a sophisticated way of binding consciouses. A thread. #sbc19 1/
Believers are commanded to love our neighbors and do good works. In the application of that, we have a virtually unlimited number of options. Soup kitchens, crisis pregnancy centers. working to end sex trafficking or abortion, foster care, etc. 2/
God lays different burdens on each of our hearts. As an advocate for any particular cause, part of the work is to persuade others to join the effort. 3/
