The Washington Post on Jim Wallis…

Jim Wallis is preaching about a Bible torn apart. Wallis tells the crowd at the Seattle Pacific University chapel that when he was in seminary, a fellow student took hold of an old Bible and cut out “every single reference to the poor.”

“And when we were done, that Bible was literally in shreds. It was falling apart in my hands. It was a Bible full of holes. I would take it out to preach and say, ‘Brothers and sisters, this is our American Bible.'”

Wallis pauses. “It’s like someone has stolen our faith. And when someone tries to hijack your faith, you know what? There comes a time when you have to take it back!”
