Lesslie Newbigin on Imperialism, the Gospel and Human Unity
Originally uploaded by rickihuang
“The Christian gospel has sometimes been made the tool of an imperialism, and of that we have to repent. But at its heart it is the denial of all imperialisms, for at its center there is the cross where all imperialisms are humbled and we are invited to find the center of human unity in the One who was made nothing so that all might be one. The very heart of the biblical vision for the unity of humankind is that its center is not an imperial power but a slain Lamb.” – Lesslie Newbigin (The Gospel in a Pluralist Society, p. 159).
