"What we do is very little. But it is like the little boy with a few loaves and fishes. Christ took that little and increased it. [Christ] will do the rest. What we do is so little that we may seem to be constantly failing. But so did [Christ] fail. [Christ] met with apparent failure on the Cross. But unless the seeds fall into the earth and die, there is no harvest."
"Yet in killing the hero and murdering the Word of Life, the Powers necessarily reveal their own corrupt nature and through that revelation, we - as the faithful in these United States - are liberated from America’s idolatry. In Jesus and through his Word, we have seen the truth and the truth has set us free."
- Philip Wheaton and Duane Shank, Empire & the Word: Prophetic Parallels between the Exilic Experience & Central America’s Crisis
