Clear and present danger

The more I learn the history of Christianity, the struggles of the original Protestants, and the struggles of early, particularly Virginia, Baptists, the more I concerned I become in making sure contemporary society understands those struggles.

Vivian Paige
alerted me to a Virginian-Pilot columnist, Betsy Wright Rhodes, and her latest column "God in government 'a clear and present danger'".

The article gives a concise history of the early Christian church and a brief summation of the paradigm shifts that propelled our faith to that which we understand today.

We must guard our heritage, for those who control the past control the future. No matter what spectrum we hail from, honest discourse must be fostered so we do not jeopardize lessons learned.
