The other day I read a blog post by Peter Leithart entitled “Give Peace a Chance.” Commenting on the book The Question of Peace in Modern Politics, Leithart believes that “the editors begin from assumptions that need to be questioned.” From here Leithart begins to question the editors assumption:
What should the proper stance be for the Christian in regards to the future? It seems in our day that many Christians are apprehensive about the future. Particularly in the West, whenever you open a newspaper or turn on the news, things seem to be getting worse and worse. Moreover, the “world” seems to be more and more antagonistic toward the Gospel. Presented with this narrow description of reality, the Christian can be tempted to believe that things are indeed only getting worse and worse.
