Five Degrees to the Left is not Upside Down

This is posturing. The point is clearly not to do what you are actually maintaining that Jesus said to do. The point is to maintain a rhetorical superiority over those of us who say that Jesus taught nothing of the kind. Kraybill says that Jesus taught that we are to live in a “up-side down” way. This can be accomplished, he goes on to reassure us, if we lean just slightly to the left. But leaning five degrees to the left is not upside down. Sorry.
