Intervju med N.T Wright

Christianity Today har i sitt senaste nummer en intressant intervju med N.T Wright med anledning av hans bok Simply Christian. I intervjun talar han bland annat om orsakerna till varför gnosticismen fått ett sådant uppsving de senaste åren:

"One of Carl Jung's famous sayings was, "Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside awakens." That's 20th-century Gnosticism. When you get the rise of the modern American empire, the post-Holocaust world and all the anomie of modernity, people are asking, "What is it all about?" Gnosticism seems to many people like a place to find something good about oneself in the face of a hostile world."

Han kontrasterar detta med ett kristet perspektiv:

" ... the great emphasis in the New Testament is that the gospel is not how to escape the world; the gospel is that the crucified and risen Jesus is the Lord of the world. And that his death and Resurrection transform the world, and that transformation can happen to you. You, in turn, can be part of the transforming work. "

Fram för en mer världstillvänd fromhet!
