“In Revelation, Jesus is a prize fighter with a tattoo down His leg, a sword in His hand, and the commitment to make someone bleed. That is the guy I can worship. I cannot worship a hippie dippy, diaper, halo Christ because I cannot worship a guy I can beat up.”
– words spoken to Evangelical theologian and scholar, Brian McLaren
“Revelation confesses, in the midst of persecution and martyrdom, that the poor, unarmed Galilean riding on the donkey, hailed by the poor and hopeful, is the one to trust. . . Revelation celebrates not the love of power, but the power of love.”
- from A New Kind of Christianity by Brian McLaren
