Yoder on Apocalyptic


Quoted in www.silouanthompson.net

The point that apocalyptic makes is not only that people who wear crowns and who claim to foster justice by the swords are not as strong as they think…

It is that people who bear crosses are working with the grain of the universe. One does not come to that belief by reducing social process to mechanical and statistical models, nor by winning some of one’s battles for the control of one’s own corner of the fallen world. One comes to it by sharing the life of those who sing about the Resurrection of the slain Lamb.

— John Howard Yoder
