Instead, Christians are called by our Lord to think. Jesus locates his command to
think, of course, within the broader commandment to devote all that we are to
God and to God's service. The clear implication is that we are to think, yes, and in
a way conducive to that concern—in short, to think Christianly. Many authors in
our time have called on Christians to think Christianly. In doing so, they generally
have deplored the way many Christians in fact do think. 2The usual target of this

Wherever I picked it up, however, the pregnancy of the phrase has been
gradually but steadily forcing itself upon me. It expresses better than any phrase I
know the kind of thinking that is required of those of us who call ourselves
Christians. At first glance, this statement may seem somewhat platitudinous. Of
course Christians ought to think Christianly. On further thought, however, it is not
quite that simple. If to "think Christianly" means anything, it means to think
differently from the usual ...

My response to the thenomists on this point, then, will also be different. I can
agree with the reconstructionists that God desires to remake all of society and not
just the individual. (I do not share, however, their optimism about the likelihood of
this happening before the return of Christ.) It is surely wrong for the Christian to
thinkChristianly” about sexual ethics and business morals and not to think
Christianly” about what political philosophy to endorse and what candidate to
vote for.

1 If by that it is meant, as Blamires argued at length, that the Christian in the
contemporary cultural crisis has ceased to think christianly and to bring the
claims of Christian truth and criteria to the marketplace of ideas, there is
undoubted insight in the conclusion. But the question that heads this chapter
warrants renewed consideration. Can we say that there is, in fact, a Christian
mind? If our question is answered in the negative, we have effectively
surrendered all possibility of meaning, ...

My job was to save people from feeling impotent, unattractive, or powerless by
offering them a Porsche, which promised to fix those problems.”7 It's only a
commercial, right? The same thing happens with the shows and movies we
stream on Netflix or Hulu (see chapter 40 for more on this). Our assumptions
about questions of human worth or what happiness is and how to achieve it are
subtly shaped without realizing it. As Christians we must learn how to think
Christianly in a world that ...

For instance, opposition to abortion and homosexuality are, I think, genuinely
Christian views. But, as a Christian environmentalist, I am distressed to hear
brothers and sisters in my own church aping certain prominent radio preachers,
lumping all environmentalists into the category of New Age tree huggers, and
dismissing the whole movement as a secularist plot. What we badly need is solid
grounding in the Christian worldview. We need to know how to thinkChristianly

I How should Christians decide what they are to believe?1 What constraints limit
a person who wants to think Christianly on some topic? What criteria can
Christians use in determining what they should believe? What are the proper
sources of religious authority to which they should look? On these questions
Catholics and Protestants typically disagree. Protestants classically recognize but
one source of religious authority, namely, Scripture; Catholics classically
recognize two sources ...

If you needed answers to pressing questions from seekers, skeptics, neighbors,
teachers, family members, or workmates, you would have a body-member of your
unit in whom you could confide and from whom you could gather condensed
assistance. Or how exciting would it be to offer various eight-week courses on
how to think Christianly about dozens of helpful, interesting, and vital subjects? I
believe that this type of diverse study within the unified local body is not only
within reach ...
