In one of my college classes a visiting speaker mentioned that Karl Marx was in a library when he developed the ideas that became the basis of communism and socialism. Marx’s ideas have led to deadly consequences.
He went on to ask the question, “Who is in the library now?”
Who is reading, studying, thinking, wrestling, doing the hard work necessary to create a culture-shaping movement?
I want to be part of a generation of Christians willing to “be in the library.” I want to love God with my whole being, including my mind. I want to think about how the Gospel speaks to our culture. I want to be prepared to offer a defense of my faith. I want to think about how the church should impact or even create culture.
What would be the results if this generation of Christians was as committed to King Jesus as Marx and his followers were to communism?
