    Rock of Doubt #5: The Jesus who is still in trouble
    The Jesus who comes down from his home in heaven, has a bad time on earth but then goes safely back to heaven, does not mean a thing to [this generation]. They just don't believe he did it. Perhaps only the Jesus who is still in trouble, who hangs like an unanswered question on the cross, speaks to them in a language which they understand. ...
    Not the Christ who has risen, but the Christ who has not risen yet, who may never rise unless we help him: the forsaken Christ whom Mother Teresa meets in the outcasts of Calcutta - this is the Christ who still has power to attract. You do not have to be Christian to be attracted.
