“If your gospel is only about yourself, your spirit, your converts, and your words, and in practice your highest loyalty is to your flag . . . you can easily live in peace, accumulate wealth, and call it a blessing from God. In your naivete and passivity you can support racism, land expropriation, inequality, abuses of power, wars for oil, nuclear build-up, economic exploitation, contamination, and all kinds of injustice, and still remain a good Christian, because your too-small gospel has nothing to say to the issues of the times.”
