No need for temples, mosques, or cathedrals

The tide of human history moves persuasively toward a revelation that temples, church buildings,shrines, stupas, mosques, and other architectural relics are useless for spiritual redemption.

Christ predicted the demolition of the second temple; he also prophesied much more societal and personal downsizing that is yet to come.

He is the founder of nonviolent resistance, disallowing Peter’s impetuous use of the sword, and then allowing himself to be crucified. All of this so that he could overcome death to demonstrate for us life beyond death’s door, if you are willing to believe it.

His strategy will win out in the end, and he doesn’t need buildings or conquests of any kind to accomplish it. The kingdom of God is found in the human heart.
