"What does this have to do with the world today? Political coverage can't help but describe self-professed Christians as ambassadors of all that is Christianity. Yet, with Christianity as with any other religion, there is far much more to the story than is included in a soundbite. What I find unique here is how the discourse is utterly opposite to the heart of Christianity. Whether it's the prosperity gospel, thanking Jesus for touchdowns, or identifying Christ with one political party, we have forgotten that Christians are called to worship a crucified Jewish Messiah, who never fit in, who never gained worldly status, and whose power is not of this world. Yet through the Cross he overcomes all oppression and offers unimaginable joy and peace!"
