Jesus Mind-Fucker

The last shall be first and the first last. And similar
sayings. Paradoxical, but more. Like a Zen Koan, to be
chewed on and chewed on but remaining impossible. It’s a
sort of double bind. Where do I stand? Where do you stand?
Nowhere and in nothing. The solution of the koan, the
resolution of the paradox must be that there is not last
and first, that rank and prestige are abolished, that the
bonds that bind us to them are loosed, the yoke made easy
and the burden light. In christ there is no east or west,
etc. Oh freedom, Oh Freedom. No more hieirarchy over me,
over me. Life, real life, life abundant. Hallelujah.
