The Politics of Jesus and Peter

Excerpt from the Gospel First: “Sadly, too often the energy that goes into resisting and working to overturn the abusive structures of society eviscerates the call of Jesus to love, do good, bless, and pray.

The method for advancing the kingdom of Jesus is contrary to the world’s method. Instead of resisting or escaping, Christians are called to incarnate gospel values in the midst of the evil they face.” more
