The Church Should Bless, Serve, and Change the World — A Quote by Brian McLaren in “A New Kind of Christian”

“The world doesn’t exist for the benefit of the church, as if the world were a mountain that we strip-mine to get ore to process in our spiritual factory, for the church’s enhancement. No, the church exists for the world — to be God’s catalyst so that the world can receive and enter God’s kingdom more and more… ‘God so loved the world that he gave it his only Son…’ The kingdom… is where the historical and eternal come together.”

— Brian D. McLaren, “A New Kind of Christian”, p 84
