Obama's Ethic of Responsibility

I need you to understand that I read more than just Jim Wallis, but lately he (and his friends) has been producing such good stuff that I can't help but share with as many people as possible. Today is no exception.

Recently, Barack Obama was interviewed by Barbara Walters. In this interview, he made the following remarks: "When people are pulling down hundred million dollar bonuses on Wall Street, and taking enormous risks with other people’s money, that indicates a sense that you don’t have any perspective on what’s happening to ordinary Americans."

Brian MacLaren is a contributor to Wallis' Blog site, God's Politics. MacLaren gave his perspective on Obama's remarks in this blog - "God's Politics." Granted, not everyone is a fan of Barack Obama, but you can't discount the fact that it is refreshing to hear such words from a high-level politician, let alone the next president of the US.

For your reference, remember Jesus' words in Luke 12:48b: "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."
