Controversial ‚ÄòAnti-Jesus Spikes‚Äô Prevent Jesus From Going to Church
"Anti-Jesus Spikes" (cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward)
You've read the story and seen the pictures
of the "anti-homeless spikes" installed in some doorways in London to prevent the homeless from sleeping there. It seems to be getting easier to become homeless but increasingly difficult to be homeless.
When I saw those pictures I immediately thought of how unwelcoming we can be to others. Theologically speaking, I believe we are all Christ, that is, the body of Christ... all of us, without exclusion... and that to reject one is to reject all which is to reject Christ.
The thing is it works both ways: we¬†can't get in and those inside can't get out.
