We must be crucified
"Let not us who would be Christians expect anything else than to be crucified....for to be Christian is to be crucified in this time and in any time since Christ came for the first time. His life is the example and warning to us all. We must be crucified personally,mystically;for trough crucifixion is the only path to resurrection,if we would rise with Christ,we must be humbled with him even to the ultimate humiliation, being devoured and spit forth by the uncomprehending world........we must be crucified outwardly in the eyes of the world, for Christ kingdom is not of this world and world cannot bear it, even a single represantative, even for the single moment. The world can only accept antichrist now or at any time. "
