Embracing God and Rejecting Masters
Jesus Radicals organizer Nekeisha Alexis provides an overview of a Christian anarchist's position and the inherent tensions with regard to embracing God as a Christian and rejecting all Master's as an anarchist. Alexis balances what has been understood as a contradiction in terms (Christian+anarchist), by challenging traditional views of God as "master," through biblical accounts of God as creator, liberator, and love. Alexis shows how Jesus' rejection of "easy, worldwide domination as a means to a new society is also a choice to work outside of the established political powers in 'upside-down' ways, mirrors the anarchist position on the futility of working through the State to create social change.
