wicked systems

Dan Edelen hits the nail on the head. Wicked systems and the cure are not new. The youth of today have not spotted a new problem. Emerg* is not the answer. Whatever movement or conversation that comes next is not the answer.

See Edelen's post for a brief reminder that the problem and the cure are not new. As Francis Schaeffer wisely said, "Christianity provides a unified answer for the whole of life." It sickens me when I hear "christians" condemning Christianity or the Church as the problem. They only reinforce that they know not of what they speak and are already ensnared in the same problem they think they are addressing.

Thanks, Rick, for the link to my post at Cerulean Sanctum.

We need braver Christians who have moved beyond appying Band-Aids to amputations. The problems are systemic and need more than quick fixes. The system needs an overhaul, but we lack the gutsy people who are willing to speak out and do something to change them.
