Whenever I ignore the plight of the poor, I deny the resurrection.
When I turn my back on those on the margins of society, I deny the resurrection.
When I pledge my allegiance … to a corrupt system that places profits over people, I deny the resurrection.
When I fail to stand with the fallen, when I deafen myself to their cries…
…when I choose power rather than siding with the powerless, it is then that I shout to Jesus “You died in vain!”
