Mar 22, 2021: Powers Dethroned

Robert E. Webber

It is no longer necessary to be bound by the power of a false understanding and the distorted functioning of the created order. Faith in Jesus Christ, who is the ultimate ruler over all of life, can break the twisting of political, economic, social, and moral structures into secular salvation. Because those structures that promise secular salvation are disarmed, they can no longer exercise ultimate power in our lives. The powers have been dethroned by the power of the cross (Col 2:15).

-Robert Webber, Ancient-Future Faith: Rethinking Evangelicalism for a Postmodern World (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 1999), 51.
