Gleanings: A Dangerous Allegiance

Richard Rohr has been writing daily meditations on the description of evil as, “the world, the flesh, and the devil.”

In a post this past Wednesday, he wrote about the danger of worshiping any system—even good ones….

When you worship [any system, even a good one] when you let them have total power, when you refuse to critique these systems, they can wreak the greatest havoc in history—and they have. Any system that says “bow down and worship me” (Matthew 4:9) is always diabolical, whether it be church, state, or “the market.”
