Of Scarcity and Sanctity

  1. Just read the last part of Romans 13 last evening, and was especially caught by, “It is high time to awake out of sleep.” Sleeping usually happens when we get settled into places of comfort. Beds: the ultimate comfort. As a Christian community, we are hitting snooze. So thankful for your thoughts, and appreciate your article.

  2. I think you put the Jeep Cherokee on a higher pedestal than most. Further, a 2012 Toyota Rav 4 is hardly an economy car. In the end, I hope you are selling all of the excessive components of your house and car, so as to fund your approved charities. Granted, selling the excess will only pass the proverbial buck to some ignorant buyer that lacks your infinite “wisdom”. FYI – Out-of-touch is spelled Douglas Groothius.

    1. That’s over the top. I don’t think we are to live in “as long as ism” I e the mentality that as long as there are poor or hungry people in the world we shouldn’t do this or that. But there are other arguments on the dangers of too much comfort that aren’t “as long as ism.”
