In relation to government Jesus is eternally quixotic


In relation to government Jesus is eternally quixotic
Though he plainly recognizes there will be governments 
and the wars that governments prosecute 
Jesus proclaims profound political realities
in the context of individuals
He changes not systems but hearts
Heart by heart institutions are changed 

Jesus heals not by creating institutions but by touch 
He is power 
 Jesus offers a window on what true and abiding power is
It makes the notion of having a few minutes in the Oval Office laughable 
It makes an encounter on the street where someone asks for a quarter 
and receives five dollars
potentially monumental.
