The Gospel According to John and Eugene

“And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good.” – from East of Eden by John Steinbeck

“While there is a lower class, I am in it, while there is a criminal element, I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.” – Eugene Victor Debs

These strike me as very Christ-like statements. Statements Christ Himself would have made (and basically did).

The so-called Christian Nationalism we see paraded around by cynical politicians (and others) isn’t Christ-like. It’s Christian-ism, and is anathema to the ethos, mission, vision, calling, and expectations the Crucified had for Himself and His followers. I’m just saying.
