Quote of the Day

Mythology is always about salvation, peace and prosperity.  Rome found salvation in the universal peace of the age after Augustus.  The “American Empire” finds salvation in economic progress and global control.  Paul tells a story about a salvation rooted in Christ, historical sovereignty located in a victim of the empire, and prosperity that bears fruit in the whole world.
