I do keep up with the Internet Monk's blog. Writing as a post-evangelical yet still a devoted Christian, his insights are intriguing and very often truthful. And in this recent post, he addresses an issue that has bothered me to no end in evangelical circles: the idea that so-called Christians of other denominations, especially liturgical ones like Catholics, Orthodox, Anglicans, Lutherans, etc., are not "really" Christians and need to be "reached" with the "true" Gospel.
I remember one of our former pastors making the point that there were very few "Christians in Russia, totally bypassing the millions of practicing Orthodox Christians. I felt shocked and saddened by this view that people who practice Christianity somewhat differently than we evangelicals do are considered "unreached."
Michael Spencer, the Internet Monk, addresses this issue of the "Reached" and "Unreached" in his newest post: click here to read it.
