Authentic Christianity is NOT a Religion; Jesus Abolished the 7 Pillars of Institutional Religion

Institutional clergy hate the fact that Jesus abolished institutional religion. They will fume and fight to defend the legitimacy of their institutional "position."

While genuine Christianity is a Way, following and participating in the life of Christ, …

Luke 13:3-5 & the Super-natural, Non-violent Resistance Politic of Jesus

In a recent exchange on social media, I came across this excerpt of N.T. Wright's interpretation of Luke 13:3-5. No, I tell you; but unless you  repent, you will all likewise perish.

It is fascinating. For a minute, I adopted this view, b/c it helped explain the genocide ancient Hebrews committed in God’s name.
