Fears and Gospel

According to Leithart, many Christians have unwarranted fears. Among them are fears of globalization and a “one-world” system. Christians are thinking in terms of christianity and not gospel. Christianity is an isolated system. The Bible never uses the term. However, the Scriptures speak of Christians and the Church. Christianity causes the wrong sorts of fears for the wrong sorts of reasons. Globalization is certainly a threat, but from “the viewpoint of the gospel, globalization is a religious and political trend…Globalists are enemies because they preach a false gospel, an eschatological message of international peace and plenty that will be achieved through liberal political and capitalistic economic institutions.” These systems are counterfeit gospels. They are not a threat because they will take over the world, rather, they are a threat because of their false messages.
