Christians Should Get Dirty
February 15, 2013
Johnnie Moore is author of Dirty God: Jesus in the Trenches (Thomas Nelson, 2013) and vice president and campus pastor at Liberty University. He is also on the board of World Help.
I was just trying to go up an escalator. Somehow, I ended up sandwiched between two groups of protestors.
They were waving their signs, beating drums and making a general wreck out of the whole place. In front of me were the anti-capitalists protesting the pharmaceutical companies. Behind me were the sex workers fighting for the legalization of their trade. On both sides, many were infected with HIV or AIDS.
I was attending the International AIDS Conference—hardly the place one might expect to find a conservative, evangelical Christian from Liberty University.
