An Illusion Christians Had

Posted in contemporary tagged at 10:38 AM by alexlozada

In the midst of MCC’s series “Dis-Illusioned” (seeing the truth behind illusions about Christianity), here is an article from a mainstream media source The Daily Telegraph (UK), “The Passion of Jesus Seems Much More Believable These Days” Charles Moore addresses an illusion that Christians have had about the interaction between their faith and the society around them:

But for Christians, the situation has become clearer, much closer to the one familiar to the founder of their faith. It was an illusion, though a pleasant one, that our social order was ever very closely related to the religion that seemed to uphold it. Now that the connection is almost completely severed, it is easier to see the faith for what it is – always despised and rejected, always virtually impossible to sustain, yet always reborn at Easter.
