42 - Einstein - Christian Civics Training - Biblical CivicsChristians are called to proclaim their faith AND to Cultural Engagement.   They are not mutually exclusive activities.

However the church today has a mindset that they will not be effective in reaching people if they are out being salt and light to culture.   So churches have stepped away from cultural issues and the culture is rotting as a result and interestingly enough only a trickle of people come to faith.   There is no revival, there is no renewal, there is no larger cultural impact.

Maybe this modern worldly thinking is wrong.

Albert Einstein gives us a hint that it is.   He was not a believer, but when Germany culture began to be taken over by ‘Statists” the churches attempt to warn the people made a great impact on him.

"Being a lover of freedom, when the revolution came in Germany,

I looked to the universities to defend it, knowing that they had always boasted of their devotion to the cause of truth; but no, the universities were immediately silenced.

Then I looked to the to the great editors of the newspapers, whose flaming editorials in days gone by had proclaimed their love of freedom; but they, like the universities, were silenced in a few short weeks….

Only the Church stood squarely across the path of Hitler’s campaign for suppressing truth.

I never had any special interest in the Church before, but now I feel a great affection and admiration for it because the Church alone has had the courage and persistence to stand for intellectual and moral freedom.   

I am forced to confess that what I once despised I now praise unreservedly."

Albert Einstein

Einstein's spiritual interest was peaked.
