Paul Axton preaches: The organizing principle of this world is idolatrous in that it would sacrifice people for principle, the few (the poor and weak) for the many (the strong). Paul pictures this as collusion with demons and call for anarchism - love against the organizing power of this world.

Paul Axton concludes his series on Anselm: Anselm works out the necessity of the death of Christ as part of the logic, already developed in his other arguments, of a pure reason. The necessity of the death of Christ is a violent logical necessity in his closed system of the human mind.

Paul Axton Preaches: Paul is teaching the Corinthians of an alternative knowing - a self-awareness that must include a sensitivity to persons. It is not simply a matter of knowing a set of facts – idols are nothing and God is something. It is a matter of knowing persons – some are weak some are strong – and the principle found in Christ is that of a loving personal knowledge.
