Interestingly the best response is revealed in the Gospel of Christ, and an understanding of what it means to operate according to the Kingdom of God…as opposed to religious “order”, humanism, and economic rationalism. Capitalism is at the crossroads, and now being tested, and yet ironically the one often called father of it (Adam Smith, aka Wealth of Nations) understood well the key to it success as expressed in his faith, and revealed a little in his ‘Theory of Moral Sentiments’. His oversight perhaps, assuming man would not abandon God and Christian principles…and its underlying moral fabric of otherness, love, hope, faith, awe of God, empowerment to the individual in the context of the love of and for family, truthes of Christ..the need of a Saviour, and freedom.
The church has a message and role in responding to this massive movement, a Tsunami that can bring great good or damage, and it needs to proclaim and live that word…heaven on earth, the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.
