A Ministry of Disruption — CATE VOSE

We have sanitized Jesus the embodied Cosmic Christ Consciousness using our post-enlightenment, post-modern filters to make him palatable for the masses, to make his life and witness ‘preach’. White men made made Jesus look white in scripture illustrations. Rich folks attribute our material comforts to his “blessings,” which are in turn a direct correlation to our “personal salvation.” Many of us invoke what amounts to the Christian version of superstition and imagine our vengeful, wrathful God ‘needs’ a payment of blood to atone for our sins. We have taken what is good and true and holy and mysterious and tried to pin it down so that we can wrap our minds around it; because what we can understand and intellectualize, we can control.
