I believe in the omnipresence of God.
I believe God loves everyone in the world.
These two simple truths lead me to a simple conclusion, which I am hoping is correct.
If God is everywhere, and loves everyone, then He probably would like to have the people who love Him be available in most places. This certainly makes sense out of the Great Commission. He sends us everywhere to touch everyone.
I am headed to Burning Man in a month, because I believe in these values. I live in Salem, MA because I believe in these values.
On one side of this conclusion I ask myself: What are the limits to this? Are there any?
On the other side I ask myself: Has Christianity done a good job of being willing to go anywhere to love people in the same way God does?
What do you think? How would you answer these questions? What caveats are there, and in what ways have we fallen short.
