Thank you to Evan Oswald for “Selling the Evangelical Soul” (Letters & Comments, Jan. 1). Instead of power over others, Christ calls us to be servants to all, starting at the bottom of the social ladder. Evangelicals have a lot of work to do in distinguishing between the tenets of their faith and their politics. I am reminded of the church’s complicity, even support, for a certain leader in Europe who, following the devastation of World War I, promised to make Germany great again. We may benefit from the economic upturn but must remind ourselves prosperity is not the priority of Christ’s kingdom.
