Tony Jones makes the comment that without a wide swath of our culture subscribing to Calvinism and the “protestant work ethic” free market economies are a thing of the past.
Are free markets incompatible with secularism? Is the only hope for the free markets a Third Great Awakening? Or maybe the first Global Great Awakening?
Or, to put it another way, is the current financial crisis the church’s fault?
Update: David Fitch has a great post asking good questions about how this financial crisis might affect the church.
