Snippet from the new Journal of Aggressive Christianity, which is out now at armybarmy.com. The interview here is with General Eva Burrows (R).
JAC: Please comment on the state of aggressive Christianity in the 21st century.
How relevant is primitive Salvationism?
EB: I respond positively to the term ‘primitive Salvationism’. To me that refers to the original, elemental, pristine qualities of our early Salvation Army — the spontaneous joy in the faith, the zeal for soul-saving, the willingness to risk everything for Christ, the audacious attacks on the strongholds of Satan, the readiness to adapt, the relevance of the message, the strong social conscience. These are qualities for all centuries from the first to the twenty-first. Through the Holy Spirit we must reclaim them as we enter the twenty-first century.
