Gospel of Peace in Political Dialogue

What kind of dialogue does the Gospel of peace have with the state, especially in as dark a political time as the one we find ourselves in? That of obedient supporters of its agendas or of withdrawn resignation to its violence? Jason and Paul discuss the New Testament’s witness (from the Gospels and the epistles) of the Church as a radical alternative Kingdom to Caesar’s, a Kingdom whose prophetic words and life are an engaged critique of the powers of this dark world.
