Miniblog #161: Evangelism in Light of Church History’s Great and Ironic Tragedy | Musings of a Hardlining Moderate.

Carson Clark tackles again a delicate matter:

‘Perhaps the great and tragic irony of Christianity is that the less Christians there are the more we seem to live like Christ and the more Christians there are the less we seem to live like Christ. We manifest a collective prophetic voice when we’re persecuted but silence it to then persecute others. This has been a fairly consistent pattern throughout church history, and I find it deeply disturbing. Moreover, it raises undeniable complexities in our evangelistic efforts amidst an ever-increasingly Post-Christian, Western cultural context.’

I wonder what my friends who are specialists in church history think of this? ESpecially Alex Nadaban.
