Today I direct your attention to a post by Michael Spencer from a few years back entitled “Does the Gospel Change The Way You Look At The People The Culture War Tells You To Fear and Dislike?”
If the Gospel has changed us, then we regard no one in the flesh, according to our prior ways of thinking. This includes people whom the culture war tells us to hate. Yet if our view of such people–whether they be militant gays, atheists, angry feminists, progressives, Muslims, etc. If we continue to regard them as enemies and threats to our culture and our beliefs, then can we really say that we have been transformed by the Gospel?
