I really should be on the road right now heading to a U2 concert but, alas, I am not. Say what you will about Bono's doctrine, I would consider Bono to be a modern day prophet and I found Bill Hybel's interview with him deeply convicting. The only point I would argue is Bono's reason for the church's hesitance to get involved in humanitarian efforts. I would say the reason the church has been "behind the curb" is that much of what we call "the church" practices what the apostle James calls dead religion. A dead unrevived life can not go and be the hands and feet of Jesus feeding the poor and hungry or caring for the orphans and widows. It's that simple and ought to make those of us quite comfortable with our small, quiet lives uncomfortable. I know I'm feeling rather uncomfortable and rather petty for being more upset about a concert than the injustices going on all over the world right now.
