After a nation of chosen ones had stripped him naked and ripped his incarnated flesh, he still died for them. And even today, after billions have chosen to prostitute themselves before the pimps of power, fame, and wealth, he still waits for them. It is inexplicable. It doesn’t have a drop of logic or a thread of rationality. And yet, it is that very irrationality that gives the gospel its greatest defense. For only God could love like that.
