The Corruption Of Worldy Success, Ecclesiastical Version

From Alive Now! Magazine, March/April 2010, by Eli Fisher:

“The fundamental concerns of Christianity . . . lie with the oppressed and not the oppressors, with the marginalized and not the powerful.  Bit its very success as a movement has carried with it the seeds of its own corruption.  Once it becomes the dominant religion (or the religion of the dominant) its focus, message and intent invariably shift.” 

Good words.  Will the Church let the Spirit guide us into the Body of the risen Christ who opened the doors of faith and nurture to the poor, or a club full of people who in His name work to maintain a status quo that’s as foreign to the Kingdom of God as Mick Jagger at an abstinence-only convention.
