The metaphysics of discipleship

A great post from Halden on the metaphysics of discipleship: “In Jesus’ view, the call to discipleship that he was preaching was not something hard and burdensome, but rather a call to leave such burdens behind..., a call to anarchic liberation from the dominating forces of slavery and death…. The call of Jesus to discipleship is not merely a moral call to a really, really difficult way of living for the sake of becoming virtuous. Rather it is a call that fundamentally challenges the conventional metaphysics of violence whereby we construe the entire shape of the cosmos.”
