Jesus is the anti-authoritarian
He is the one who is the authority of the world but submits to those who should be the servants
The master performs the humiliating tasks that no one else would do.
Many of us Christians want to submit to a dead law rather than a living Christ: "The Bible says it, I believe it, that settles it."
This is the murderous spirit of Christian authoritarianism. Love dies with the utterance of those words. This is not the way of Jesus, and is not the way of love. Therefore, let us not fall back into the bondage of immaturity, but grow into the loving people God has made us to be.
