Is Paul Ryan engaged in the active participation of idle worship? Is the Paul Ryan plan "cheating on God?" Are we married to an ideology instead of married to God?
I recently asked Lisa Sharon Harper, Sojourners Director of Mobilizing and founding executive director of New York Faith & Justice, what broke here heart. Her answer? The Paul Ryan Plan.
Paul Ryan is all business. Just business.
I'm all for business, I own one, but "the market" is not righteous. No limits, profit-driven activity falls short Kingdom imagination-wise, needing have-nots and under abundance to drive it's model.
Business, the church and government can't do it alone; we need the creative tension and collaboration of all three to produce real fruit and social change.
"I'm going to love through every means I have: business, government, the church, engaging my neighbors and through myself," Harper says.
