Song of Response “They’ll Know We Are Christians”
“If God does not enter your kitchen, there is something wrong with your kitchen.
If you can’t take God into your recreation, there is something wrong with your play.
We all believe in the God of the heroic.
What we need most these days is the God of the humdrum, the commonplace, the everyday.”
- THE OF JESUS’ LORDSHIP
Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza:
“Critically, in order to unmask them as texts promoting patriarchal violence.”
“To convince the dominated, the subordinate that is it right and proper or inevitable or in everyone’s best interests for them to remain willingly and voluntarily in their place and to fulfill their duties.
“Of course everyone’s best interests may actually mean in the ruling class’ best interest.”
“The race of Adam is under the death sentence. There is no commutation and no escape. God cannot approve any fruits of sin, however innocent they may appear, or beautiful to the eyes of men. God salvages the individual by liquidating him, and then raising him again to newness of life.”
2. THE OF JESUS’
The Gospel Herald:
“To know Him is to love Him and to love Him is to serve Him.
It wouldn’t be loving without.”
3. THE OF JESUS’
“The fact that a cross became the Christian symbol, and that Christians stubbornly refused, in spite of the ridicule, to discard it in favor of something less offensive, can have only one explanation.
It means that the centrality of the cross originated in the mind of Jesus himself.
It was out of loyalty to him that his followers clung so doggedly to this sign.”
