The God who subverts


An extract from the Dean's sermon on Sunday, 17 February 2019:

We really should have expected this from a god who gets himself born to an unwed mother.

“Blessed are you who are poor … woe to you who are rich … Blessed are you who are hungry now … woe to you who are full now …”

What is this bleeding-heart left-wing nonsense that they are reading in churches all over the world today?

Oh? It is Jesus! Really?

I do not like him saying things like that. It makes me feel uncomfortable.

Read my lips, says Jesus.

The full text of this sermon, together with a link to a video of it being delivered is available online.
