Judged by Our Fruit

While it is unfortunate that David Bazan (“Meditations on Dis-belief,” interview by Jeannie Choi, February 2010) has turned agnostic, his insights on why that happened are instructive to all Christians, especially Christians who have turned their backs on Jesus’ teachings about peace, justice, and the poor. Bazan nailed it when he said: “Believing the right things and not doing any of the right things is the norm in evangelical Christianity.” Fortunately, there is a movement away from the Christianity that aligns itself with wealth and political power and toward a Christianity that aligns itself with the heart of the Person the faith is named after.
