Podcast 8 - Addison Bross - What Would Jesus Do?15/03/2017 Duración: 41min
"Jesus took sides. He was very political. Jesus is aware that when the poor hear the good news, some people don't like that. Some people find that very upsetting, and go hostile against somebody that is preaching good news to the poor. This vision sees Jesus as the opponent of empire.” Addison talks to Scott and John about Christianity as it relates to peacemaking, racism, and empire. Coming of age in the south at the birth of the civil rights movement, and teaching at an all-black college opened Addison's eyes to the way Christianity is historically used as an arm of the empire, and simultaneously to the power of Jesus' teachings to inform us as peaceful resistors to the oppressive tendencies of the powerful.
