    I’m attending the World Evangelical Alliance General Assembly in Jakarta. Holistic evangelism outside the walls of the church is the theme under the title, “Thy Kingdom Come.” I wish all readers could be here to sense the excitement as the church represented here considers moving forward.

    I have just started reading “Carpe Diem Redeemed” by Os Guinness. His first chapter states that the Hebrew (Jewish) view of time was distinct in history because it was not cyclical. The Eastern (pantheist) view is cyclical, and therefore fatalistic. The Naturalist (atheist) view is linear, but empty of meaning and temporary. The Jewish/Christian view is linear but covenantal and eternal, he writes. We are part of nature’s cycles, but not limited by them because of God’s eternal, linear story. He has a good section in that chapter about the relationship between this Jewish view of time and human freedom (as opposed to fate).

    Good men can disagree, so I have to confess I disagree with my good friend Os. I disagree that a cyclical view is necesarily fatalistic. That might be the case with Eastern faiths, but I think Os is conflating East and West.
