I completely agree. The work of navigating the complexity surrounding these two “versions” of Christianity and “versions” of Jesus is hard. It’s very hard. I am traveling to Ohio to visit my mother this week and will be reminded that many of those described in “Jesus and John Wayne” are not villains. They are not evil people trying to grab power and exert influence. They are actually really good people who have grown up in a very specific context – speaking of positionality- and have found themselves in a specific narrative framework. How I will love them and communicate with them will make all of the difference. And frankly, that’s hard.
