“IF WE LEAVE HIM IN THE TOMB…”

“If we leave him [Jesus] in the tomb we can systematize his teaching and sanitize his actions. We can  manage the church and keep things in order. If we leave him in the tomb, then Christianity belongs to us to make of it what we will, to reform it in our image and sell it to the highest bidder. If we leave him in the tomb, the implications for the church are explosive to say the least. If he is truly with us in a way not so dissimilar to  how he was with his disciples, then nothing will ever be the same again.” Andrew Cottingham (blogs at http://andycottingham.com), quoted in Raised with Christ by Adrian Warnock.
