Crucifixion.


Why did Jesus lose his life?

Fear.

The Pharisees' fear of losing their position of spiritual leadership when Jesus criticized them.

And the Romans' fear of an insurrection when Jesus was called the King of the Jews.

How can we avoid this happening to Progressive Christianity today?

We must assure those in positions of spiritual and temporal authority that we are not out to depose them but to allay their fears and touch their hearts.

If we can convince them that they have nothing to fear from opening their hearts to God and the people then the world may become a more compassionate and loving place.
