marching as to war

Professor Charles Marsh is dead-on in his criticism of American evangelicals' embrace of political power and the Iraq war. Just war theory has become inconvenient for a huge segment of the church, and Marsh does a great job of pointing out the problem many churches have gotten into by making their ultimate allegiance to a political viewpoint rather than to the gospel of Jesus Christ. His closing line, "repentance is a tough demand for a people utterly convinced of their righteousness," is the most convicting thing I've heard a prominent evangelical say in a long time.
