    The image of Jesus as “winner” and “champion” are deeply etched into my psyche. I still have vivid memories of growing up watching skits and dramatic re-enactments, depicting Jesus as triumphant over his enemies. I still believe Jesus is triumphant over his enemies, I just no longer agree with evangelicalism on who those enemies are. Evangelicals would often quote “for we wrestle not against flesh and blood…but our warfare is against principalities and powers…” but I came to realize that the enemy was anyone who disagreed with our camp – liberals, homosexuals, universities, etc – and despite quoting this passage of Scripture, many evangelicals see other humans made in God’s image as enemies.
