Higher Power

"Jesus was not crucified for being a good citizen, for being just a little nicer than everyone else. The powers of his day correctly saw him and his followers as subversives because they took orders from a higher power than Rome or Jerusalem. ...Jesus reduced the mark of a Christian to one word. 'By this all men will know that you are my disciples,' he said: 'if you love one another.' The most subversive act the church can take is consistently to obey that one command."

Philip Yancy in What's So Amazing About Grace p. 239
