We cannot look at the world's problems and then turn to Scriptures to reinterpret them using our reason in an attempt to fix the world's problems and create a utopia. The proper sequence is to Read God's Word, Understand God's Word then put into action God's word. There is nothing new under the sun. God's solutions work. Marx was a putz.
A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.
