An Insider's Look at Mormon Culture

How Think Ye of Jesus?

In a recent interview on Religion and Ethics News Weeklycolumnist E.J. Dionne lamented the political polarization which divides Americans into two groups—each holding core American values—individualism and community.

Dionne, a Roman Catholic, sees the same division in American religion. Asking people about Jesus, he finds two kinds of answers: “Jesus changed my life” and “Jesus changed the world.”

The answers are not contradictory nor are they mutually exclusive. It is an interesting question for Christians to ask themselves.
