MyMind Christian Perspective

“I simply argue that the cross should be raised at the centre of the marketplace as well as on the steeple of the church.
I am recovering the claim that Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles, but on a cross between two thieves;
on the town’s garbage heap; at a cross road, so cosmopolitan they had to write His title in Hebrew and Latin and Greek…
At the kind of a place where cynics talk smut and thieves curse and soldiers gamble. Because that is where He died.
And that is what He died for. And that is what He died about. That is where churchmen (Christians) ought to be and
what churchmen (Christians) ought to be about.” - George MacLeod

The Social Gospel

Matthew 16:24-25
Then Jesus said to his disciples, "If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and
take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it .
Matthew 25:31-46 "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates
the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
  "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance,
the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me,
I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'   "Then the righteous will answer him,
'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?
When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?
When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'
  "The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'
  "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared
for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,
I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me,
I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.' "They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry
or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'
  "He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'
  "Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."
