MAYBE...


... I'm a "Red Letter Christian".... we love to box ourselves in with words and labels. I suppose we need that to an extent.

Thanks to Tony Campolo for continually challenging me and American Christians to not accept the boxes that we tend to find ourselves in. Read this article about how Tony Campolo blasts Religious Right as 'frightening'.

hat tip: John B.

The problem with the idea of "Red Letter Christian" is that Jesus can't be understood apart from the tradition he was grounded in. Similarly, Scripture can't be read apart from the tradition of the Church.

It is, however, a great article.
