Which Christianity?

 

In today’s time and climate, this question must be asked. There are competing and revival versions of these answers. I’m trying to set the record straight. There is an answer that makes a difference in the world, that heals the divides among peoples, that brings liberation to the captives, sight to the blind, and healing to a wounded world. My work is to show people how they can come to see this Jesus, the one I call Jesus of the East, and how he can bring wholeness and flourishing to all.

Synopsis of Jesus of the East

Much of Western Christianity does not contain the story of Jesus who was a Palestinian Jewish healer and liberator, a servant to the sick and oppressed. This was due to the theological ideas that won out in debates done by the religious leaders who were politically powerful. Rather, we have a religion of the status quo, a Jesus who served to satisfied the anger of a punitive God, a great law enforcer. Jesus of the East is the story of the one who sought to heal the wounds of the “sinned against” and broken of our society. It is the Jesus of the Eastern Church Fathers and Minjung, People’s theology that shows that liberation for some means liberation for all.
