Descripción del producto
Can the Church depend upon coercive powers to be the guarantor of Biblical values of charity, love of neighbor, fairness, generosity, shelter and nurture? Can anything but the Holy Spirit make us free?
Is Caesar Our Savior? says no.
Jesus Christ commands His Church to be the instrument of freedom in the land. He grants His Church authority to serve all people. That call cannot be abandoned without inviting oppression. Is Caesar Our Savior? calls the Church to resist asking Caesar to make this world better and brighter and join Jesus in making all things new.
"These will be the ways of the king who will reign over you: He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive orchards and give them to his servants...He will take the tenth of your flocks, and you shall be his slaves. And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves..."
- From 1 Samuel 8
Eric puts his hat in the controversial and often combative ring where God and government spar. Provocatively yet with a pastor's compassionate heart, Eric throws down the gauntlet summoning the church to be the church in a broken, fearful and needy world.
