I wondered why Christianity had not typically embedded itself into these festivals, why we weren’t among the leaders of new cultural developments and wildly creative thought. Certainly God is wildly creative – enough to find his way into human hearts in other cultures around the world. But at these festivals, and in the newly developing cultures of postmodernity, there seemed to be so few people of Jesus.
One of the things that drives people into liberalism is when their evangelical professors in college or emissary refuse to discuss the tough questions that non-Christians are raising. This creates a sense that evangelical scholars don’t have the answers. But we should never be afraid to explore, to ask tough questions, to pursue trusty at all cost.
