A New Christian Manifesto ~Bob Ekblad

I am being rocked and deeply challenged by some of Bob Ekblad's ideas!  He approaches being a disciple of Christ as an invitation to sign-up to God's agenda of changing the world through the power of love.  Sounds fantastic.  The reality of that thought is tougher to stomach, as Ekblad challenges us that in order to do this we must lay-aside ALL other agendas, alliances, power structures and attachments.  He really focuses on nationalism as a type of idolatry, and, coupled with a radical non-violent theology, advocates swerving the poor, those on the margins, and the "others" or the "them".

Part of me says "Amen!" and part of me says "Ouch!"
