because jesus was killed
Two misconceptions that are killing the Church:
1) The belief that Jesus died on the cross;
2) The belief that Jesus was innocent.
Two corrections that can breathe new life into the Church:
1) Jesus was killed, and the same powers and ideologies and mentalities and systems that put Jesus on the cross are alive and well today;
2) Jesus was absolutely guilty under Roman imperialistic law, for he threatened to undo the very fabric of society with his hard, hard love. And that crime was punishable by death.
