From your reading of Yeager’s and Stassen’s discussion of Niebuhr, how might they respond to Wendell Berry’s position as stated above

Wendell Berry’s “Christianity and the Survival of Creation” says: “The complicity of Christian priests, preachers, and missionaries in the cultural destruction and the economic exploitation of the primary peoples of the Western Hemisphere, as of traditional cultures around the world, is notorious. Throughout the 500 years since Columbus’ first landfall in the Bahamas, the evangelist has walked beside the conqueror and the merchant, too often blandly assuming that their causes were the same. Christian organizations, to this day, remain largely indifferent to the rape and plunder of the world and of its traditional cultures. It is hardly too much to say that most Christian organizations are happily indifferent to the ecological, cultural, and religious implications of industrial economics as are most industrial organizations. The certified Christian seems just as likely as anyone else to join the military-industrial conspiracy to murder Creation. If we read the Bible, keeping in mind the desirability of those two survivals — of Christianity and the Creation — we are apt to discover several things about which modern Christian organizations have kept remarkably quiet or to which they have paid little attention.” A central question regarding Christianity and culture is whether and to what degree structures of cultures are often devices of social control and oppression, and what should be the response of Christians, both individually and collectively. In a paper (1,500-2,000 words), address the following: From your reading of Yeager’s and Stassen’s discussion of Niebuhr, how might they respond to Wendell Berry’s position as stated above?
