The basic idea is that Mark 10:35-45 is not about sin or atonement, but about subverting hierarchies.

Why are churches struggling in 2015? Because churches are supporting the systems that Jesus attempted to break down. In that paradigm, churchers aren’t needed, churches are bitter, and churches don’t matter.
