I got a link this morning from a friend to a video clip about a new flick that has just come out called, We Live in Public. Feel free to check it out, but you might want to make sure you don’t have any kidos nearby. Though the intent its creator, Josh Harris, was to make a “cautionary tale of what to expect as the virtual world inevitably takes control of our lives”, the video actually illustrated something else I’ve been saying for years. I see one of two futures for America. Either a Christ following revival and awakening or a socialist dictatorship. When “Free” information and complete “Freedom” rule and are the prime objectives in life, then chaos is the ultimate result. The only way you can be free from Chaos and its natural consequences is by some form of order and “rightness”. That will happen either by a changed, self willed choice to honor Christ in the lives of everyday folks, or because the State forces them to obey the rules it sets. Just some Free thought to chew on.

Ok, I guess I ought to give some kind of reason or rhyme as to what this post has to do with Living in the kingdom as it does seem kind of random. At best, I would say that a connection of conviction for the Christ follower is that Jesus did actually speak about Holiness. Often times in the Emerging and Emergent church, folks like to talk about Jesus being a great social justice activist, but forget His teaching about truth. There are also times when we take grace for granted and kind of slyly wink on off color issues. But the fact of the matter is that if we, are to truly follow Christ in His Kingdom, then we are to also follow Him in just doing what’s right in God’s sight; whether it’s on camera or not. Note John 5:14, 8:11.
