Quote, Putting the World to Rights

God intends to put the world to rights; he has dramatically launched this project through Jesus. Those who belong to Jesus are called, here and now, in the power of the Spirit, to be agents of that putting-to-rights purpose. N.T. Wright

    Uri,

    I love the quote, however, I have wondered if Wright leans toward a social gospel. As I read some of his writing in the past I thought he hand the tendency to lean in that direction. thoughts?

  2. Uri Brito says:

    Perhaps not so much toward a social gospel, but a world based on socialism (distribution of wealth; forgiveness of world debt, etc.)
    So, he would not be on the side of those who say: Do not present Christ, just do mercy deeds, but he would certainly not have a capitalistic world in mind. He’s a Brit after all. Doug Wilson has hammered him on that issue.
