Brad – What’s Baptism All About?

Jesus didn’t come to shame people into behaviour modification. He came to present an entirely new way of looking at the world, a new way of doing life, a new blueprint for society in which the poor and oppressed people have a special place and focus, in which those who would follow him would not consider themselves the centre of the universe but instead serve others first, a new way of understanding power in which peace, humility and unconditional love would be the true sources of power and where non-violence in the face of corrupt powers using violence to reinforce their privilege would become a way of life.
