Christianity and Politics – Part 7 (..power cont..)

Wayne said something interesting today about Christianity and power:

“…the church through the ages has always thrived when it was not the tour-du-force or the imperial power or when it was tied into government and politics but rather, when it existed as a struggling (almost) counter-element to corrupt establishment. Cases are: the early Church, the Church in China. So for us to strive to become established in a sense is shooting ourselves in the foot. Sigh. While I’m not sold on starting house churches in the US (I think it’s impractical and unnecessary) I sit at an uncomfortable juncture between establishment and grass-roots, organic faith communities”
