We draw the line at Christ’s identification with the poor and the oppressed. I believe that the Church, as a result of our lives being transformed by the new birth, should speak out prophetically in defense of children in the womb, the sanctity of life AT ALL STAGES, humane treatment of immigrants, economic justice and fight for a racially inclusive society. We do this not as a substitute for preaching salvation, rather because we are saved. The goal is not a ‘socialist paradise’ but rather to draw the lost to Christ by “letting our light shine”.
