Revolutions and Jesus

“Violent revolutions, in this sense, aren’t revolutionary. Noisy regime changes are utterly predictable ‚Äì bourth about by displays of power and hollow promises and indomitable wealth. In contrast, the message of Jesus may well be called the most revolutionary of all time…

“What other kind of revolution would possibly change the world? perhaps what’s crazy is what we’re doing and pursuing instead ‚Äì thinking, after all these millennia, that hate can conquer hat, ware cure war, pride overcome pride, violence end violence, revenge stop revenge, and exclusion create cohesion. Perhaps we’re the crazy ones!”
