Go to Haiti and tell me about the “two kingdoms”

I hate admitting it when David Brooks is right, but he is right about Haiti and the impossibility of institutional solutions.

Haiti needs the Great Commission.  Somehow they have been allowed to have a voodoo dystopia.  It needs to end.  And it is going to take the real Great Commission.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Of course, we need it in the financial industry too. And everywhere else.

    It seems to me that it’s only possible to have a radical 2K view if you live in a culture that’s been Christianized for at least half a millennium. Only then can you miss the obvious fact that decent social structures, personal morality, culture, and public behavior don’t happen in any consistent way apart from the gospel transforming a critical mass of the people in the culture.
