Acts 16:16-40
Collective Christian anger can mobilize the church towards meaningful work.
After Paul was released from prison in Philippi, he pressed the issue about the punishment he received unjustly. Instead of “cutting his losses” and getting out of harm’s way, Paul insisted on a public apology, bearing witness to the oppressive system that preyed upon the vulnerable.
Speaking truth to power has been part of the Christian tradition, especially as we examine the ways Jesus displayed defiance towards crooked social orders.
