Forging Ploughshares

Cultivating the Peaceable Kingdom

Paul Axton lectures on the importance of the singular foundation through Niemöller and Bonhoeffer. Paul pictures Christ as the One foundation in I Cor. 3 and indicates even though we may build on this foundation our life may be a futility. The work of the Church at certain periods in history may come to nothing - this is illustrated in the life of Martin Niemöller and Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Paul Axton introduces I Corinthians. He argues Paul is employing something like Austin's notion of a speech act - his "word of the cross" is deployed to create a unified community where the logos of wisdom is creating dis-community.

Paul Axton preaches on I Cor. 2:6-8 - Human wisdom is responsible, according to Paul, for the death of Christ and those who killed him were blind to what they were doing. The Bible traces human religion and understanding to a death dealing lie and this is what the wisdom of Christ exposes and displaces.

Paul Axton preaches: With sexual abuse by both Catholic Priests and Protestant clergy reaching epidemic proportions there is the necessity to pose the possibility the church is incubating evil. Corinthians addresses and provides an alternative to illicit desire and sexuality.

God's holiness, his innermost unity, is the mode in which the Corinthians and all of us are to find unity.

Paul Axton preaches: In the 1960’s and into the 70’s – with the Vietnam War, the sexual revolution, women’s liberation, the rise of the drug culture – what we call the cultural revolution – a phenomena called the Jesus People came about. Youth Culture meets the Church. We are not at the end of this cultural clash but can assess it through Corinthians.
