Christian Socialist Interfaith Quote

The words "compassion" and "social justice" always gives life to progressive movements. The word "interdependence" is a code word that promotes human tolerance and fellowship through mutual consideration and respect.

The New Age Movement reels people in this their jargon of "interdependence," "global village," and "universal brotherhood." The New Age ensnares its followers with the bait of humanitarianism and self-improvement.


“We have begun to construct a new model of Christianity with deep spiritual, religious pluralism, sound science, good common sense, compassion for the needs of humanity, the inclusion of all people, and respect for the environment.”
                                                - The Center For Progressive Christianity

We urgently need to make compassion a clear, luminous and dynamic force in our polarized world. Rooted in a principled determination to transcend selfishness, compassion can break down political, dogmatic, ideological and religious boundaries. Born of our deep interdependence, compassion is essential to human relationships and to a fulfilled humanity. It is the path to enlightenment, and indispensible to the creation of a just economy and a peaceful global community.
