“The antisocial and corrupt systems of a dominant society cannot be attacked more sharply than by the formation of an antisociety (or maybe better stated, an ‘alternative society’) in its midst. Simply through its existence, this new society is a much more efficacious attack on the old structures than any programs, without personal cost, for the general transformation of the world.”
-From Gerhard Lohfink’s Jesus and Community
Maybe we as Jesus followers should be a bit less concerned with casting our vote for the right candidate, and a bit more concerned with forming communities that announce a different Gospel than the one announced by the kingdom of the world.
This post articulates my personal sentiment towards the current state of the union and their infatuation with a dictatorial election.
