The Point: Farewell, Harry Blamires

A worldview hulk has passed. For the Colson Center, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

I wish you’ve listened the intro to BreakPoint This Week—Chuck Colson’s voice booming, saying, “What is Christianity? It’s an reason of all of reality.” Christianity is a worldview.

Well, this past week, British clergy Harry Blamires, who wrote the groundbreaking 1963 book “The Christian Mind,” died at 101.  As Warren Cole Smith remarkable in his “Signs and Wonders” mainstay at BreakPoint.org, Blamires was a pivotal figure in the worldview movement. He saw the dangers of the church’s flagging egghead life.

“The tasteless assumption,” Blamires wrote, “that the Church’s life will continue to be cultivatable so prolonged as we go on praying and cultivating the souls, irrespective of either we difficulty to consider and speak Christianly . . . may spin out to have apocalyptic results.”

He’s right. And assisting Christians think, talk, and live Christianly in every of life is because Chuck Colson founded the Colson Center. So appreciate God for Harry Blamires. May he rest in peace.
