Spirituality and Defiance

Spirituality and Defiance

"Spirituality and Defiance" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

This cartoon can be purchased in my nakedpastor Etsy shop!

Here we see Jesus teaching a woman how to give the finger.

A good, healthy spirituality teaches us how to be defiant.

In fact, in all religious traditions, defying evil, injustice, and tyrants... what Saint Paul called 'the principalities and powers'... is a major theme.

Only those interested in keeping power oppose defiance.

Unless it's defying logic or love.

(Disclaimer: When I speak of spirituality, I don't necessarily invoke a divinity. To me, spirituality is about the inner life of a person, with or without reference to a divine being or the supernatural.)
