The Church Gives Up Her Own Head

"The Church Gives Up Her Own Head" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

The bible story that inspires this cartoon is the one where John the Baptist's head is served on a platter to the king. The prophet John the Baptist was a threat to Herod's unbridled power. I know... not all churches! BUT... can we agree... that the church is in a serious place right now? The great theologian Karl Barth drafted the Barmen Declaration in 1934, a fierce critique of Christians and Churches that supported the Nazis. We are living in similar times.
