Chaos Theology: Power

“The world itself is the will to power – and nothing else! And you yourself are the will to power – and nothing else!”
Friedrich Nietzsche.
A right theology of power understood through the Bible narrative and exercised in our real lives is the intention of this sermon. We all have mechanisms for dealing with the use and abuse of power, but I suspect that we don’t always recognise them or express them coherently. Power, whether at work on the global scale or in our own relationships needs to be understood and used for good not evil. And Jesus astonishing relationship with his own power is a unique point of engagement with a world obsessed with power. This fourth talk in our chaos theology series can be found here. If you have comments or thoughts add them below.

One thought on “Chaos Theology: Power

  1. The sunday night theme inspired us to write an RE lesson the other day at work – all about power and how you choose to use it. It’s going to be part of the Kenyan national curriculum for RE. How random is that for a sermon outcome?
