Just had a new article go up at Provoketive Magazine. It’s called, “Post-Good Friday Traumatic Stress.”
It deals with living crucifixion scenes, the horror of Good Friday, and what it all means.
Here’s an excerpt: I hate to say that [living crucifixion scenes] “offend” me. Everyone is offended these days. It takes so little to offend the modern mind. So, I’m not offended. I just run afoul of the fact that churches think that the gospel is being spread by putting middle-aged men on a cross so people can see them on there. In a world filled with suffering, what good does it do to see a picture of more suffering without explanation? People drive by without any idea why the Christ suffered.
Take a moment to check it out if you can. And I should have a new blog post up here tomorrow. Thanks for reading!
