Universalism seems to have gripped the attention of the Christian blogosphere this week. But you know what? I think we miss the larger action if we restrict our attention to what the Christian celebrity authors and the Christian celebrity watchers are debating en masse amongst themselves.
I think we miss the larger action unless we open our eyes to the world beyond the evangelical ghetto and ask, what did the apostle John mean when he suggested we should be in the world but not of the world. How so of the world but so not in the world is the current universalism conversation?
