Perspectives on the Cross of Jesus Christ


Down through the centuries, Christians have worshipped a crucified God. The cross is at the heart of Christian revelation, Christian knowledge, Christian experience, Christian prayer and Christian preaching. Paul says, confidently and boldly, “We preach Christ crucified.” (1 Cor.1:23)

But I wonder today if we have somewhat ‘sanitised’ the cross of Christ so that it doesn’t affect us in the way it once did. Perhaps we have ‘distanced’ ourselves from it and even developed ‘herd immunity’ to its power, its brutality and how its message can change lives.
