N. T. Wright weighs in
Most excellent fellow heretic Curt sent me this quote from N.T. Wright that is quite appropriate to what we've been discussing here:
Politics is the constant to-ing & fro-ing between tyranny and chaos. But we believe in Jesus Christ and in the sovereign saving rule that he exercises from the cross and in his resurrection. And we have the task of modeling before the world what that sort of polis would look like. Not as an independent thing hiding away from the world, keeping the light to ourselves so that we can then say “look at the rest of the world, isn’t it dark?” Well, of course it is if we’re not shining the light there!
