Sermon: The Cosmic Christ

Paul Axton preaches - Certainly, salvation is the overcoming of sin but the fullness of redemption is the completion of creation’s purpose. Paul has moved our understanding of God’s plan beyond the earth and the human race to its cosmic impact as part of the outworking of the love (the very essence) of God. The whole point of who God is and what God is doing in creation is summed up in the incarnate Christ (1:10).

Paul Axton Preaches - The way of peace can be equated with the Gospel while the way of violence is that taken by the enemies of the cross of Christ. It should be oxymoronic to speak of “violent Christianity” or “Christian warfare.” Peace is the Christian way established by the Cross and instituted in God's Kingdom, the Church.
