I wonder if this is a natural arc for most Christians, or something that is just happening to me personally: As I have gotten older, I have become less radical, and more reformist-minded.
Unlike my years of being an angry youth, I generally no longer sympathize with those who advocate the complete destruction / reconstruction of existing institutions. I have lived long enough now, as an American Christian, to see many boastful religious experiments (like the anti-church-spirited cell-church craze that was so hot during the 1980s) either crash and burn, or at least get way toned down.
I do not like it when certain people mock or disparage moderation. Not all moderation is cowardice, vagueness of conviction, or reflective of woolly thinking. Good moderation is aware that zeal and pragmatism work together, and that fire uncontrolled can burn everything down, not just the bad things. The Tsar was bad, but the Communists were ten times worse.
It's one thing to support getting rid of corruption in government, it's quite another thing to want to get rid of government. The first is reform, the second is radicalism, and the second thing is an evil. If you are talking about eradicating the KGB, or the KKK, or Boko Haram, sure, absolutely. But most institutions are not those things.
Even though Martin Luther was a strong personality, he was trying to rescue and reform the Church, not blow it all to smithereens.
