"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Lord Acton
Today at Mere Comments I highlight what I’m calling the “Neo-Anabaptist temptation.”

I don’t think it’s fair to Anabaptists to take one feature of their movement, pacifism, and label another group as neo-Anabaptist because they agree with one feature even though they disagree on everything else.
I don’t want to try to separate the wheat from the tares, but I’m suspicious of evangelicals who go “neo-Anabaptist”. Socialists call themselves everything but socialist in an attempt to deceive the gullible. I think a lot of theologically liberal people are calling themselves evangelical for similar reasons. There is no way that Jim Wallis is an evangelical.
