What if you felt that Almighty God had called you personally to devote your life exclusively to His service only to discover that those in charge of your training were people not worthy of your respect? Would you stubbornly stick to your path? Would you rebel and try to change the institution from within? Would you begin to doubt yourself and your own integrity? Or would you question whether the institution itself was actually what its founder, Jesus of Nazareth, had intended so many hundreds of generations before you?
Turn the pages of Love Beneath the Mighty Dome and discover what happens to those confronted by just this dilemma, how it affects their lives, their ability to function, their ability to love.
Guest Post Love Beneath the Mighty Dome by Ronald J. Wichers
“most valuable thing in all creation.”
In the context of the trilogy the “elephant in the room” is how clergymen relate to other human beings. They are positioned between the laity and God as a kind of go-between. An answered prayer belies that fact. So, in the end, are they really necessary? Do we really need all this show and pomp – the trappings of coercive power? Do we need all the rules and regulations about something that really is quite simple? – someone reaching out to the heavens with a cry for mercy, or love.
Jesus of Nazareth was murdered by powerful churchmen who, in a sense, put a contract out on him because, in their envy and fear, they saw him as a threat to the established order. Every time a religious leader abuses those who place themselves in their care the horrors of the crucifixion are relived. But the clergy is a fact and the Roman Catholic Church will go on. I simply want the leadership to make some simple changes.
