I have always believed in chaos
Jesus did not come to bring order out of chaos are wrong.
Order can be just as much a tool of the Hell as chaos
Is Calvin’s Geneva holy? Ask Miguel Servetus.
Was the Puritan city on the hill more holy than the “savages’ wilderness” it replaced?
Is Stalin’s Russia holier than Somalia’s warlords?
Our idolatry of order builds walls around God,
Our walls cannot contain God,
But they can keep his beloved children out.
They are different. They do not measure up.
They are poor. They dress funny.
They speak with bad grammar.
They have tattoos.
They are sinners.
They are not like us.
But Aslan is not a tame Lion, and Jesus is not a tame God.
Let his wildness in
Let it kick over the moneychanger’s tables
Let it tear the veil of our hearts
Let it shatter every wall.
Dear God, please, shatter every wall.
