Moore – Thomashillier.co.uk Christianity Today Beautiful Orthodoxy Book of the Year in 2016 Keep Christianity Strange As the culture changes all around us it is no longer possible to pretend that we are a Moral Majority Christianity Today Beautiful Orthodoxy Book of the Year in Keep Christianity Strange As the culture changes all around us it is no longer possible to pretend that we are a Moral Majority That may be bad news for America but it can be good news for the church What's needed now in shifting times is neither a doubling down on the status uo nor a pullback into isolation Instead we need a church that speaks to social and political issues with a bigger vision in mind that of the gospel of Jesus Christ As Christianity seems increasingly strange and even subversive to our culture we have the opportunity to reclaim the freakishness of the gospel which is what gives it its power in the first place We seek the kingdom of God before everything else We connect that kingdom agenda to the culture around us both by speaking it to the world and by showing it in our churches As we do so we remember our mission to oppose demons not to demonize opponents As we advocate for human dignity for religious liberty for family stability let's do so as those with a prophetic word that turns everything upside down The signs of the times tell us we are in for days our parents and grandparents never knew But that's no call for panic or surrender or outrage Jesus is alive Let's act like it Let's follow him Onward to the future.
