[Speaking of Greg Boyd’s view of cultural engagement] “In other words, the kingdoms of this world are an ugly camel, and will always be an ugly camel. Moreover, this dichotomy flattens the world outside the Church, meaning that all camels are more or less camels, and are more or less equally ugly. But Boyd allows that some Christians may want to entertain themselves come election time, some of them putting lipstick on the camel, while others opt for putting on some earrings. At some point, the more insightful among those who buy all the assumptions will slap their foreheads and ask, ‘Why are we decorating the camels?’ And they will then move to Lancaster County, PA and buy a buggy” (Empires of Dirt, pp. 77-78).
