Castles in the Sand

When the waters rise, will our castles remain?

The people that we consider villains of the Gospels were literally the people who were trying the hardest to please God. They’re the ones who were so devoted to their faith that they created little insular communities focused on protecting their families from outsiders who could carry disease (both physical or spiritual) and lead them astray. They’re the ones who tried to legislate morality to ensure the world around them reflected their values. They’re the ones who literally led the charge to kill Jesus.
