Sermon: Spiritual Warfare

Paul Axton Preaches - The implication of the ancient view combined with a New Testament understanding is that the social and political is integrated with the spiritual.

Can White People Be Saved?

In this lecture, Paul Axton, makes the point that Ephesians describes the deconstruction of those categories that divide so as to reconstitute a unified humanity. Not all dualistic categories are the same - some will need to be obliterated and some reconstituted - but inasmuch as they partake of dualistic identities they are undone in Christ.
