The Old Rugged Cross — 1 Comment

  1. Fantastic! Over the last few months it has been occurring to me that the first coming of Jesus Christ subverted and overthrew a world – a system of thinking which had become the norm and which is insistent on re-establishing itself as the preferred norm in human affairs – the dominance of man by man and the personal gratification felt by those who exercise such power, especially wealth as a power on display. “The Church was about power and influence and respectability, it was not about a Galilean carpenter hanging on a Cross. We have continued in that vein, being respectable and accommodating ourselves to the powers of the state in order that we retain our influence.” says it all.
    Your article exposes a serious weakness of the established churches and suggests why many of them are closing in favour of the newer vibrant strains of the faith. (I am a Methodist)
