The natural way of the world is those with power exploit those without.

Yet our society knows this is not the way it should be. We expect those with power to serve and care for those without power. And this belief persists even though the evidence of history is against us.

We hold this belief because of the influence and teachings of Jesus. Al Stewart discusses what Jesus taught and then put into practice, and explores the implications of taking him seriously.
