Josh Chalmers - Theology of Mockery


Josh Chalmers spoke about our theology of mockery. Why does our society mock others? Going back to the death of Jesus, when he was being mocked and scorned, Josh taught about why this portion of the death of Jesus is important. "Why were they taunting him? Why were they humiliating who he was? Because if Jesus was right, they're wrong. So why are Christians mocked? Because if you're right, than they're all wrong. And so they must mock the one idea that condemns all of their other ideas. If Jesus is truth, all other ideas are a lie." In connection to mockery, we discussed the gift of tongues and how this is our language of resistance.
