Superpower accommodation

‘There is always a particular temptation faced by the church when it is hosted by a superpower. The temptation is to accommodate itself to its host and to adopt (or even christen) the cultural assumptions of the superpower. This is nothing new; the long history of the church bears witness to the reality and seductive power of this temptation’.

– Brian Zahnd, ‘Beauty Will Save the World
