New Evangelicals and Catholics Together Statement
Today, Christianity Today released the latest Evangelicals and Catholics Together statement: "That They May Have Life." Christianity Today's editor, David Neff, also summarizes the document. Here is how he begins:

Face it. Culture warriors get battle fatigue. That's why organizations that energize the culture wars on both ends of the spectrum use inflammatory rhetoric and constantly search for fresh sources of outrage.

A new statement from the group informally known as ECT (for "Evangelicals and Catholics Together") offers a decided contrast to this culture-wars-on-amphetamines approach. In "That They May Have Life," ECT calls us to renew our commitment to the "culture of life," without "resign[ing] ourselves to unremitting warfare." While "many despair of finding any commonalities by which warfare can be replaced, or at least tempered, by civil discourse," the statement's authors write, "we refuse to join in that despair."

Evangelicals and Catholics united together = a united religious front. Jesus had nothing to do with joining in with the culture war in his day, but strongly rebuked the hypocrits, and pharisees, nor does He now. He came to call sinners to repentence, pick up their cross and follow him. His message was not popular then, nor is it a popular teaching of these two groups of organized state controlled religion.
