A WEEK WITH.... J. DENNY WEAVER- day5

J. Denny Weaver on church and culture:

When Christianity encompasses the social order, the "church" as "people of God" has become identified with a society or with an ethnic group or with a political entity. Church no longer consists of those who respond in faith to the call of Jesus Christ. Instead it is a church comprised of the mass of the population, identified by geography, politics or ethnicity. Modern terminology for this amalgam of church and state is Christendom or a "Christian society."
