Civil War of Religion

Tom Ehrich has the measure of the war on religion. A most uncivil civil war, I would say. Mr Ehrlich’s eight points are worth considering … not that most conservatives are likely to do it.

An anti-religion government would divide and conquer by segregating churches into warring camps, turning people against each other, preventing churches from attaining the “oneness” that was God’s desire for them, and protecting wealth and power from any intrusion by the actual gospel. In reality: Churches do this shattering and weakening themselves, as one group after another is lifted up for derision.

Another good reason to discount the recent fussing about stuff. As long as Christians are liable to distrust others or level public insults, I think we can immediately dismiss them as serious players in the realm of religion. Political people, no doubt.
