Then, ‘Jesus is Lord’ shook the foundations of an empire; in the ‘free’ world today, ‘Jesus is Lord’ bumper stickers mainly occasion yawns. Cars adorned with them are not stopped at police roadblocks or firebombed by paramilitary saboteurs. The only people scandalized by the phrase are those who regard its language as sexist. But there are countries where ‘Jesus, friend of the poor’ can get you killed. Fidelity to the gospel lies not in repeating its slogans but in plunging the prevailing idolatries into its corrosive acids. Walter Wink
