N.T. Wright on empire, on following Jesus:

Jesus taught us to pray, “Thy kingdom come . . . on earth as it is in heaven.” And we Christians have all too often said, “on heaven as it is in heaven, and if we can sort out a little bit of earth, that’s OK, but it’s not terribly important.” Jesus’ kingship is all about a different way of power, a different way of life, within this present world.

Here’s the long article this quote came from. It’s the transcript of an address at Seattle Pacific University earlier this year. Wait a minute! Who forgot to tell me that N.T. freakin’ Wright was in Seattle?!! I totally would’ve crashed that party. Oh well, maybe next time.

By the way, I found this article linked on Jordon Cooper’s site.
