An unread, un-lived Bible displayed as a prop seems all the rage these days.

Preach the words of Jesus. Let Jesus do the heavy lifting. If people are offended, let it be clear that they are offended at the words of Jesus. This is what I do. Which is not to say that it won't cost you dearly. Grace and peace to you.

In light of this how can we say that evangelicalism in white America is anything other than a failed experiment? When more than half the adherents of a Christian movement cannot identify torture(!) as immoral, what is there left to say? I'm brokenhearted.

Q. When you support illegal torture by secret police over the Sermon on the Mount what does it mean to claim that you’re a Christian? A. Nothing.

Q. Should a follower of Jesus support the use of torture? You know the answer. But a WP/ABC poll revealed that a majority of white evangelicals in America support the use of torture. 😳 This is an “eruption of real.” And now you know that a great falseness is prevailing.

If making America great again involves waterboarding, nuclear weapons, child detention camps, and ridiculing environmental concerns, it’s a project Christians cannot participate in. -Postcards From Babylon, p. 127

A great delusion falls upon those who imagine God working through various Caesars, ancient and modern. Until we truly see the kingdom of God this delusion is almost inevitable. Jesus told Nicodemus that unless he was born again, he could not perceive the kingdom of God. Selah.

(And any notion that this assertion might be controversial could only arise in late modernity.)

Without a regiment of life-giving prayer rooted in historic orthodoxy the survival of Christian faith is tenuous at best. Prayerless Christianity doesn’t stand a chance in a secular age.
