N. T. Wright: “The line between good and evil does not lie between ‘us’ and ‘them”

28 June 2014

N. T. Wright

“The line between good and evil does not lie between ‘us’ and ‘them,’ between the West and the rest, between Left and Right, between rich and poor. That fateful line runs down the middle of each of us, every human society, every individual. This is not to say that all humans, and all societies, are equally good or bad; far from it. Merely that we are all infected and that all easy attempts to see the problem in terms of ‘us’ and ‘them’ are fatally flawed.”

    This blog is hit or miss for me (though always interesting) but this quote is a definite “hit.”
