WHO says Jesus’ message isn’t radical.
If Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount today, he might be declared delusional or disowned by the self-proclaimed Christians who love power but would despise the actual Christ. The message is just too radical for some people.
I feel we often keep fighting the wrong battles, taking our eyes off the liberating mission of Jesus’ new kind of humanity. His words corroborate a Saviour deeply concerned with social, political, and moral issues. Jesus not only challenged the politics of religious purity, but advocated the politics of compassion.
Listen to His words.
