“More often than many of us would like to admit, powerful Christians have held captive the truth of the incarnation rather than releasing it in order to dismantle society’s inequitable power structures.”
Christena Cleveland, writing on the Faith and Leadership website, discusses how the “liberating truth” of Jesus’s incarnation has often been obfuscated to maintain a social construction that supports various forms of inequality.
“But rather than focusing on, submitting to and calling forth that truth, many Christians will spend the Advent/Christmas season engaged in individualism and consumerism, two forces that support social inequality. In many ways, the truth of the incarnation remains shackled.”
