Christianity is not the world’s great problem solver. When I was young, I viewed other religious identities as being in opposition to my own. I was taught that Christianity was a hegemony that needed to be expanded. I learned, rightly, that Christianity was a kingdom. Yet I was taught that the enemy of this kingdom was not only just immorality, but also anything “non-Christian.” People who were not Christians were viewed as either enemy soldiers or as civilians to be persuaded to join our side in the conflict. I thought that “Christian” bands were better than secular ones, that Christian bookstores were better than others, and that any facet of culture that did not relate to Christian thought was my adversary. You almost never hear such things explicitly taught (outside of fundamentalist churches like the one I grew up in), but it is implicit everywhere in modern Christian language and thought.
