The Kingdom Suffers Violence

Written by Doug Giles on December 1, 2022

There are all kinds of wonderful verses you’re likely to find on coffee mugs and refrigerator magnets. This is NOT one one of them.

And that’s really too bad, especially when you wrap your head around what Jesus is saying here.

Maybe, if this weren’t such a misunderstood verse — or if Churches weren’t filled with so many people content to just maintain the status quo — it SHOULD be the kind of verse we have emblazoned on our merch.

For those among us who like to inscribe God’s word in ink on our bodies… this one might even make for a good tat.

But none of that will matter until we can make sense of the badly-misunderstood verse itself. And that’s what the Warriors and Wildmen show digs into today.

Prefer to take your show to go with the audio version?

No sweat.
