Harris: counter-culture or Christ

Thursday, February 28, 2019
    There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For God does not show favoritism.
    —Romans 2:9-11 (NIV)
    Counter-culture’s glad tidings of revolution by consciousness are neither new nor revolutionary. Christianity has been trying to achieve a revolution by consciousness for two thousand years. Who would deny that Christian consciousness could have changed the world? Yet it was the world that changed Christian consciousness. If everybody adopted a peaceful, loving, generous, noncompetitive lifestyle, we could have something better than counter-culture—we could have the Kingdom of God.
    ... Marvin Harris (1927-2001), Cows, Pigs, Wars and Witches, New York: Random House, 1974, p. 253 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 2:9-11; Pr. 1:20-28; Eze. 18:4; Matt. 16:26; Rom. 9:29; Gal. 5:22; 2 Thess. 1:6-7; 1 Pet. 1:7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, teach us Your way of peace.
