Bow to the Empire

Have we conformed to the Empire's expectations rather than being a people who live as the Gospel demands?

Do we bow to the image of Caesar and Caesar's power and wealth too afraid to live as radical followers of Jesus?

Have we turned the teachings and call of Jesus into making people feel a little better about their lives?

'Alas, how many in our day who profess to be the Lord's are as abjectly dependent upon their fellow-men or upon an arm of flesh in some shape or other, as if they had never known the name of Jehovah at all.'  C.H. Spurgeon

I think you have a point Joe. The more I think about it the more I get troubled by how easily we get hoodwinked by empire thinking and simply accept it as the norm rather than challenging it.
