Topic

Tim Tse (visiting us from the Bethel Chinese Christian M.B. Church) challenged us to ask: who is at the centre of our theology, Jesus, or ourselves – for what we can get out of a saviour? If we believe that God actually raised people – including Jesus – from the dead, we can have faith that Death will not have the last word. Pacifism only makes sense if it matters that we emulate Jesus, the true Messiah, rather than a charlatan like Jonathan the Weaver (73AD). The reality of a bodily resurrection makes death as a therapy illogical. Stanley Hauerwas suggests that Christians are called to be an alternative to the powers of the world, for whom violence is so easily used.  [KH]
