Example text

Finally the purpose of his visit became clear.  He was also aware that secular philosophies can encourage abuse as well.  Too often people interpret their creator as the one who justifies their abuse of others, particularly when their self­interest is threatened.  Modern mobility and communication mean that most persons in the global village have some contact, often intimate and intense contact, with people of alternative ideological or religious commitments.  Not only in my community, but nearly everywhere it is so, whether in Beijing, Moscow, Chicago, Munich, San Salvador, or Dar es Salaam.

Thus those who fled to the New World for religious freedom became the persecutors of others who also sought religious freedom.  It was Roger Williams's experiences of persecution in the Massachusetts theocracy which led the Baptists in North America to determine to oppose forever any other trends towards theocracy.  We note several other modern examples of the difficulties a politico­religious system can experience when meeting pluralism.

This chapter explores dimensions of our cultures and religions that are especially pertinent to the well­being of the peoples everywhere who inhabit the global village. As the twentieth century becomes the twenty­first, we observe that our global village has become quite ill.  This is mostly uncollectable interest on old debts, which was added to a debt burden of $1,500,000,000,000 by the close of the 1980s.  $150,000,000 in interest payments from the poor nations. Every day forty thousand children die of avoidable disease or malnutrition.
