“If you are open to recognizing that the United States behaves much as other great powers have behaved, but you get your information through the standard American Channels, I dare you to expose yourself to the facts that have been suppressed by our newspapers and magazines. If you are one who wants to be a disciple of Jesus, you will have some hard thinking to do about what American Christians are called to be and to do at this historic moment.”
-John B. Cobb Jr, coauthor of The American Empire and the Commonwealth of God
Never utter these words, “I do not know this, so therefore it is false.” One must study to know, know to understand, and understand to fairly judge. I sincerely hope that you don’t know what is going on in this country…because that would explain the Christian community’s eerie silence. I can easily forgive you for not rising up to speak out against such grave threats if you haven’t yet recognized them as such. I myself recently woke up from the American fantasy. I always thought that the land that I loved was good…like Santa Clause.
