Jesus for Lease

When there is a failure of prophetic imagination in the Church the Christian’s mind goes up for sale and Jesus is put up for lease. Christianity in the USA has a long history of leasing Jesus out for the cause of freedom, nationalistic aspirations, and party-political ideology.

But Jesus is Lord and King. He will not be contracted to waive another kingdom’s flag. Any version of Jesus that does is the product of a diseased imagination and isn’t Jesus at all.
