In this CD is teaching based on reflections of Rene Girard’s groundbreaking work, "Sacred Violence". Girard discovered that the central dynamic of human history has been the scapegoating mechanism, where group cohesion requires some outside group to hate, which leads to an endless cycle of hurts and revenge. Jesus the Scapegoat destabilized human history. Jesus as the forgiving victim of history receives unto himself our hatred and refuses to give it back. He never asked his followers for vengeance. He took from his followers the need to scapegoat: ‘Love Your Enemy.’ he says that when you can wake up in the morning and never need to hate anybody, to exclude, or to shame anybody, even in your mind, this is what it means to be ‘saved’, ‘redeemed’, or ‘enlightened.’ This one-hour teaching is an overview to a deep revelation that allows us to understand better the violence in today’s world.
