FAST FOOD: Nineteenth Helping

Was the reign of God that Jesus proclaimed a utopia? Most certainly it was not. Jesus proclamation and practice of the reign of God is more radical than any utopia. It is more realistic. It is more critical. It knows more about human beings. It is the only hope for the wounds and sickness of our planet. Jesus was well aware of the “impossibility” of God’s cause in the world, but He knew that God’s possibilities are infinitely greater than all human possibilities (Mk 10:27).
